Strategic Vision 2010 - 2015

Underpinning the work which IDEP proposes to carry out over the period 2010-2015 is a vision of the institute as the pre-eminent and acknowledged site in Africa for advanced capacity development and renewal in economic development management and planning for mid-career and senior policy makers at the national, sub-regional and regional levels. Within this vision, the Institute aims to ensure that the training, capacity building, policy research work and outreach activities which it carries out contribute to enhance the ability and skills of those who participate in its programmes and activities to exercise the independent and critical judgment needed to design, implement, monitor and evaluate development policies at the national, sub-regional and regional levels. The niche which the Institute seeks for itself is to be the apex African centre of regional capacity development and training for African policy officials, exercising its mandate both on its own and in concert with partner institutions for the benefit of the long-term development needs and concerns of its Member States.
