EUDiF is the first-ever global effort aiming to strengthen collaboration and engagement between diaspora development organisations, countries of origin and the European Union (EU). The Facility, which runs from June 2019 until December 2022, is funded by the EU and implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD).

EUDiF consists of four interlinking components:

 - Outreach, consultations and meetings with diaspora organisations in Europe, EU partner countries and EU Member States;

Together, these activities will generate a consolidated knowledge base on diaspora engagement practices, address the capacity development needs and priorities of governments and diaspora organisations, strengthen and expand pre-existing networks, formalise diaspora-EU interaction and promote diaspora as development actors.
