The purpose of the Strategic Plan is to provide the IACD Board of Directors, staff, members, prospective funders and other interested parties with a forward agenda that contains longer term strategic direction for the organisation and planned levels of short to medium term activities.

The IACD Strategic Priorities for the next four years are:

1. To advocate for the discipline and the methods of community development.

2. To support and engage with members and the field, by promoting and providing quality international practice exchanges, conferences, continuing professional development support, website resources, publications, research and policy analysis and commentary.

3. To promote regional and country fora and support frameworks for community development practitioners (fieldworkers, managers, academics and students) around the world.

4. To ensure the short, medium and longer term sustainability of IACD.
