NFA organized a strategic planning meeting

NFA organized a strategic planning meeting and advocacy workshop from 1-3 May 2023 for its national partners, particularly from India, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Malaysia. The event involved a series of interactive and collaborative activities aimed at engaging partners in critical reflections and conversations about their desired change, barriers, and strategies for achieving change.

These conversations facilitated the exchange of knowledge and fostered solidarity among national partners from across the region. A particularly noteworthy activity was the ‘Spinning Plates’ exercise, where participants were individually asked to think about various aspects of their organization. These aspects included clarity of purpose, capacity, organizational procedures, sustainability, usability, and fit for purpose. Participants were asked to evaluate the positives and negatives with respect to each category. Additionally, participants worked within their organizations to develop a strategic plan for their respective organizations that encompassed mission, vision, principles, core values, approach, internal-facing goals, partners, risks and a mitigation plan. Participants found this particularly useful. As one participant expressed, it was instrumental in prompting them to consider internal goals, in addition to external-facing advocacy goals, which are vital for the sustainability of the campaign and ensuring the effective implementation of programs.
