AAP Strategic Plan 2018-2023

The Strategic Plan is a roadmap of the next five years for AAP to build on its initial accomplishments and strengthen its governance structure in order to live up to the commitment that inspired its establishment - to become an African-led institution that responds to global opportunities and challenges.
