FADev’s Strategic Plan (2021 – 2025).
FADev embarked on the development of its first Strategic Plan 2021 – 2025 that will provide the direction as well as guide the day-to-day decisions, evaluate progress and provide approaches that will enable FADev achieve its objectives.
FADev envisions responsible, inclusive and sustainable Artisanal and Small-scale Mining sector in Tanzania. To move towards this Vision, FADEV work will be guided by its mission which catalyses activities implementation geared empower, build the stakeholder linkages and generating discussions that would lead to ASM policy reforms.
Being the first Strategic Plan, the design of the Strategic Framework is informed by two approaches:
i. Utilization of the evidence and contextual framework provided in the report on Artisanal and Small-scale Mining in Tanzania – Evidence to inform action dialogue, and
ii. An Analysis of the mission, strong points, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of FADev’s 2021 – 2025 Strategic Plan.
The Strategic plan as a guide to the activity implementation within FADev gives the contextual analysis of the mining sector in Tanzania and the social and economic contribution of the main players at local and national levels. It gives the information on the establishment and legal status of the organisation in the United Republic of Tanzania.
Any organisation has a role to lay within the context of its legal placement. FADev fills the gap that has been left out for decades. Its relevance is hinged on the fact that it is the only organisation working on Artisanal and Small-scale Mining sectoral issues. This is also based on, and inclines to national and international policy and regulatory frameworks with a broader factor in the African Union’s Agenda 2063, the African Mining Vision (AMV), and the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs).
FADev is an organisation in its infancy, therefore, the need to strengthening its structures. The Strategic Plan clearly states the Organization’s internal and external situational assessment and highlights the key drivers and barriers to the organisation’s progress. The latter goes hand-in-hand with the clear presentation of the Organisation’s strategic goals and initiatives to guide the organisation towards the achievement of its goals and objectives; the strategic direction and aligned activities for the life span of the Strategic Plan (2021 – 2025); current and desired capacities at the Secretariat; the needed resources to efficiently and effectively implement the Strategic Plan, and finally an overview of the planned activities and expected results.
All this aimed towards the development of a responsible, inclusive and sustainable ASM sector within the Tanzanian context.
