Imani Development is proud and grateful to note the official communique from the recent 40th SADC Summit.

The Heads of SADC States approved and adopted Vision 2050, which articulates the shared development objectives of the region for the next 30 years, and the Regional Indicative Strategic Development Plan (RISDP) 2020-30, which provides clear and achievable goals for Member State collaboration over the coming ten years.

Imani Development was responsible for delivering these two important milestones for SADC, working closely with the SADC Secretariat and the Member States to develop and validate both documents.

Whilst the Secretariat is yet to publish the final version of the Vision and the RISDP, you can view the latest draft versions in the Repository on the right-hand side of this page.

Additionally, the Summit also saw the approval and adoption of ‘The Mechanism’, which is a bespoke and innovative compliance mechanism designed by Imani Development, in collaboration with the Secretariat, to increase the levels of Member State compliance with the SADC’s various protocols, declarations, and treaty.
