Windhoek, Namibia – The changes brought about by the 30th Plenary Assembly of the SADC-PF back in 2011, rendered the current Strategic Plan inadequate to be a vehicle for guiding the implementation of the decisions. Hence, the need for its review, as to make it relevant to the latest developments and transformation process. Throughout 2013, the draft Strategic Plan for the period 2014-2018 was developed by consultants with the support of the SADC-PF Secretariat. The draft had been circulated to the Executive Committee, for their review and comments. This includes a revised organizational structure, in harmony with the strategic vision of the SADC-PF to operate like a Parliament.
