Strategic Plan for the Department of Community Development
Renewed strategic direction, policy goals and objectives for the Department of Community Development
UNICEF supported the development of this Five-Year Strategic Plan (2019-2023) to assist the Department of Community Development (at all levels) to redefine and review its strategic direction, policy goals, objectives and formulate strategies based on its mandate. The strategic plan further provides a step-by-step procedure in the implementation of the Department’s functions and operations
The Strategic Plan will, by and large, enable the Department to fulfil its current mandate of providing training for rural people in income generation activities, educating the inhabitants of rural areas on topical issues, promoting positive social behavioural change, providing technical and vocational skills to the youth, amongst others. These would eventually improve the welfare of people living in both rural and urban poor communities in line with government priorities.
