In the years 2016-2020, ACTADE will through research, advocacy and capacity building influence policies that limit the enjoyment of human rights and the participation of the vulnerable in agriculture, trade and sustainable development, working within its programme areas. The implementation of the 5-year strategic plan will be guided by three strategic objectives:
1. To enhance the performance of policies and programmes which facilitate trade by the year 2020.
2. To promote equal opportunities for both women and men to participate in trade and development.
3. To promote responsiveness to climate change in order to boost trade.
