Our strategy

Our Strategic Plan 2015–2018 was developed following substantial consultation with our partners and collaborators, and evaluation of our work to date, our operating context and key upcoming opportunities and challenges. The plan identifies three strategic priorities, with associated actions and evaluation criteria, so we can monitor and evaluate the success of their implementation.
