New Strategic Plan 2006-2012 for the Network for Animal Traction and Integrated Development in Guinea
The Guinean Network for Animal Traction and Integrated Development is an NGO, created in 1991 in Kindia where its current offices are also located. The focus of the organisation is to promote bovine traction as a means to improve agricultural production and profit increase for the producers through (financial and technical) partnerships.After 14 years in existence the organisation initiated a participatory process in 2004 to assess its past, present and future. A series of activities placed the NGO’s know-how and contributions in the context of the overall agricultural development sector in Guinea. This resulted in a Strategic plan which will guide the organisation from 2006 to 2012. The strategic process allowed the Network to review its vision, mission, strengths and weaknesses, external environment and to assess its resources for the future. Three main strategic objectives have flowed out of this:
- To improve the agricultural production, food security for target communities and increase the revenue of the producers by promoting animal traction as a strategy for sustainable agriculture.
- To contribute to the promotion of natural resource management and conservation through the promotion of sustainable agriculture.- To promote the autonomy and independence of the organisation and its grassroots partners by building organisational and institutional capacity.
In order to achieve these strategic objectives the organisation has developed its programmatic interventions and activities.
