The purpose of this Strategic Plan is to create short- and long–range interventions that will enable ENNDA to identify, evaluate and explore opportunities for continuous growth and sustainability. The Strategic Plan will create focus in the Authority’s operations while at the same time enabling it to achieve competitiveness in the regional development sector.
In support of the principal function of the Authority of coordinating and promoting integrated development projects for the purpose of sustainable utilization, conservation and protection of the natural resources within the ENNDA region, the strategic direction of this plan is to address the regional challenges through multi-sectoral programmes and projects that are well suited to provide solutions and coping mechanisms. The Strategic Plan will also address the internal operational challenges that limit the effectiveness of the Authority in discharging its mandate.
The Strategic Plan will be the blueprint to guide ENNDA for the next ﬁve years in addressing the development challenges in the region. The Plan will also:
a) Focus the Authority’s efforts in carrying out the activities that will result in the anticipated outcomes;
b) Be useful in informing all stakeholders of the development agenda, their roles and contribution, resource requirement and time lines;
c) Act as a guide in the self assessment process after the planning period.
d) Will facilitate timely resource mobilisation, allocation and utilisation within an accountability framework and a known operational path.
The overriding role of the Strategic Plan is to ensure high levels of success for the authority in implementing its development agenda within the ﬁve years.
