Imani Development is honoured to be working with the SADC Secretariat and Member States to redefine the Vision of what SADC will be in the year 2050, and its Mission in realising those aspirations.

As part of a wider process of engagement with not only Governments but also citizens, companies and other non-state actors we are inviting submissions on what SADC’s Vision and Mission 2050 should be – bearing in mind the current SADC Vision and Mission as reference points.

SADC’s Current Vision

“A common future, in a regional community that will ensure economic wellbeing, improvement of the standards of living and quality of life, freedom and social justice, and peace and security for the peoples of Southern Africa”

SADC’s Current Mission

“To promote sustainable and equitable economic growth and socio-economic development through efficient, productive systems, deeper co-operation and integration, good governance, and durable peace and security; so that the region emerges as a competitive and effective player in international relations and the world economy.”
