Strategic Plan CISLAC 2017-2022_150917

The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) is one of the major civil society organizations in Nigeria with a singular focus on legislation and legislative processes.

CISLAC works to train and enlighten civil society on policy making, the responsibilities of the legislature, and the existing decrees and issues affecting Nigerian citizens. It also aims to ensure that the legislature at local, state, and federal levels are aware of their relationships with other government bodies and have a responsibility in acting as a voice for the people.

In order to become more effective as an organization, have greater impact and fully realize its mission and objectives, the building of a strategic planning document is of extreme importance.

The Strategic Plan 2017-22 tackles areas of weakness, preventing the organization from stretching itself too thin due to lack of clarity, focus, and strategic direction. The plan also clearly outlines the thematic and strategic focus of CISLAC providing much needed guidance, streamlining efforts, and building confidence within the organization, defining clearly who CISLAC is and what CISLAC does.

With this plan, the organization is able to create realistic expectations, develop tools to monitor activities, and identify and strengthen partnerships. The strategic plan for 2017–22 has the following strategic focus areas:

  1. Support to democratic processes
  2. Fight against corruption and promotion of transparency in public finance management
  3. Promotion of peace, security and better management of Migration & IDPs
  4. Promotion of legal framework for environment and conservation of nature
  5. Promotion of human development and social inclusion
  6. Institutional strengthening of CISLAC

The political and socio-economic environment in Africa and Nigeria, during the upcoming years, will continue to present challenges and opportunities and the CISLAC 2017–22 Strategic Plan is intended to respond to these challenges confidently and effectively. This will ensure that CISLAC continues to deliver its mission with maximum positive impact on the lives of the people of Nigeria during the next five years.
