This document presents the strategic direction for ACA (2009-2014), which is shared by ACA Member institutions, the Board, Stakeholders and staff members. The primary purpose of the strategic plan is to provide a pathway for those responsible for prioritising ACA interventions and mobilising resources.
This plan was developed through a participatory process of self-assessment and drawing from the evaluation of the previous Strategic Plan (2004-2008), with a focus on ACA’s goal and core objectives. The self-assessment and the evaluation considered ACA’s current practices, the effectiveness of strategies employed to date and the challenges that lie ahead.
This Strategic Plan comes at a time when ACA is slightly over a year since its status changed to an international NGO. Capacity development which continues to be a cornerstone of ACA will continue to be a high priority area and we shall ensure that programmes are of good quality and that they meet the needs of the region.
