Kigali, Rwanda– The East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) has developed the EALA Strategic Plan for 2013-2018 during workshop sessions on 4-13 April 2013 in Kigali, Rwanda. The EALA Strategic Plan 2013-2018 builds on the Assembly’s first Strategic Plan (2010-2012) and is intended to serve as the main strategic instrument to execute EALA’s Strategic Plan mandate in a more focused, effective and results-oriented manner. The EALA Commission and Chairpersons of the EALA Committees participated in a four-day training workshop on strategic planning and management. Subsequently, the EALA Commission and Chairs reviewed the proposed Strategic Plan, followed by a one-day dissemination workshop for EALA Members and other stakeholders. Finally, the EALA Commission had the chance to incorporate the changes into the Strategic Plan and to unpack the activities for the years 2013/2014.
