The Strategic Plan 2011–2015 was approved by the IACD Board meeting on 9 July 2011 in Lisboa, Portugal and is the fourth Strategic Plan published since 1999.

The preparation of this Strategic Plan took place over several months in late 2010 to early 2011. This work included a review of the achievements over the life of the last Plan, 2007-11; an online survey of members and supporters; and focused interviews with Board members and other stakeholders.

The purpose of this 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:

1.0 Promote community development as a key method for addressing challenges, opportunities and priority issues in rural and urban areas locally, regionally and internationally.

2.0 Facilitate quality practice exchange, education, training, research and publications in support of practitioners, educators, researchers, policy analysts, activists and other community workers and organizers.

3.0 Engage practitioners, educators, researchers, policy analysts, activists and other community workers and organisers at country and regional levels and thereby promote their community-based planning and development work.

4.0 Ensure the short, medium and longer term sustainability of IACD.
