The ECA's Strategic Vision: Serving Africa Better, was unanimously endorsed by the ECA Conference of Ministers in May, 1996 The Vision statement provides the framework for the development of the 1998 - 2001 Medium-Term Plan, designed to increase the impact of the organization's work priorities by sharpening the focus of its programmes. In this connection five programme directions have been offered as the foci of ECA's work over the next six years (1996 - 2001). Following from this review, a manual/handbook for gender mainstreaming will be prepared to assist and enable ECA staff to adopt a gender perspective in the development and implementation of their various programmes. The handbook will also be a complement to gender training activities of the Commission.
