CSB 3 YEAR STRATEGIC PLAN
CSB has developed a 3 Year strategic plan to help it execute its mandate for Civil Society. The plan was completed at the end of 2018 and approved by CSB's Board of Directors at their Board Meeting in December 2018. The purpose of the plan is threefold:
To strengthen the Civil Society sector to facilitate its role in the accountability, sustainability and development effectiveness and impact in The Bahamas
To strengthen CSB to make it an effective Umbrella Organization of the Civil Society sector
To deepen and facilitate empowerment at the broadest level of the Bahamian society
The process to develop a plan started in November 2016, where a workshop took place to brainstorm ideas for the Strategic Plan. Directors from CSB took part in the exercise and sought to recraft the The Vision, Mission, Core Values, SWOT and other elements. A second workshop was held in February 2017 when the Goals and Strategic Objectives were also discussed.
The process was continued in May 2018, with the assistance of The University of the Bahamas (UB) to assist in the preliminary planning stages to survey and get input from the Civil Society sector. A CSB member brainstorming took place in June 2018, a survey of CSOs was conducted in July 2018 to establish the needs of the sector and a final CSB member brainstorming took place in September 2018 to give further direction.
