Given the dramatic developments in both the external and internal environments in which IDEP functions, the preoccupation over the last two years has been to lay a new foundation in which a more dynamic and vibrant institution can be built to meet the challenges that lie ahead. This preoccupation is justified by the fact that over the 29 years of the Institute's existence, institutional development has not been at the same pace as development in other areas. Whilst the range ': and scope of activities expanded, actions to strengthen the infrastructure were slow in coming and, mainly because of resource constraints, were haltingly implemented. Hence, not only was capacity to deliver the traditional set of programmes thereby affected but there was limited room for promoting greater responsiveness to changing needs in member States and adapting work programmes accordingly.
