African Diaspora and the Continent’s Development

African Diaspora is defined by the African Union (AU) as “consisting of peoples of African origin living outside the continent, irrespective of their citizenship and nationality, and who are willing to contribute to the development of the continent and the building of the African Union”. The AU estimates that the African Diaspora are about: 112.6 million people in South America (primarily Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela); 39.2 million people in North America (USA and Canada); 13.5 million people in the Caribbean; and about 3.5 million people in Europe.
