Strategic Plan 2022-2025

The overall objective of our organisation is to be a well-respected and effective player in the multilateral arena. Through South-South and Triangular Cooperation, it will contribute to stronger and more effective multilateralism, based on its rich and relevant diversity in economic, political, social, and cultural experiences and approaches.

Our Strategic Plan charts the Secretariat’s transition over the next three years. In an effort to become a Centre of Excellence, its structure, management systems, and work processes will be modernised. Its capacities will be adapted to better support the organisation, the Member States, and Regions. The financing of the Secretariat will be put on a stable and sustainable foundation.

Our Strategic Plan reflects our ambition for change, our aspiration for excellence, our commitment to deliver results, and our goal to make a meaningful difference to the lives of the peoples of the OACPS.
