We are pleased to present to our readers, beneficiaries, stakeholders and partners our 10-Year Strategic Plan (2019-2028). Building on the successful implementation of our work programme (2000 - 2018), this Strategic Plan redefines our mission and vision of the future. It focuses on strengthening the design and implementation of public policy to build a dynamic and vibrant Africa that responds to the needs and aspirations of its citizens. Based on our comprehensive understanding of the key public policy challenges facing African countries in the 21st Century, our commitment is to make ACODE a harbinger of new knowledge and policy ideas that are needed to achieve socioeconomic transformation of African societies.
The strategic actions set out in this strategic plan have been defined by our desire to (i) develop a robust policy-relevant research agenda; (ii) increase usability and influence of our policy ideas at all levels of policy-making; and (iii) strengthen institutional performance to achieve efficiency and cost-effectiveness. This strategy helps us to distinguish between routine institutional operations and strategic growth benchmarks.
Our Board acknowledges the contribution of all stakeholders in various ways to the growth of ACODE and the implementation of our work programme. Our partners in governments within the Eastern and Southern Africa sub-region, like-minded local, national and international CSOs, international development agencies and financial donors have been instrumental in the progress we have made and the impact we have created thereof. As we embark on the implementation of this 10-year strategy, we will seek to strengthen existing partnerships and nurture new ones. We are committed to ensure that the footprints of our work, evidenced through increased socioeconomic transformation and the deepening of democracy, are apparent across the African continent in the end.Get our strategy
