CARDI Medium Term Plan 2014- 2016
The MTP, 2014-2016, follows a proven path to achieving success for the Institute and, by extension, the sector. The previous MTP, 2011-2013, built on various principles articulated in the previous MTP. This approach was prudent and successful in that the programmes implemented were responsive to the Region’s mandate and major priorities. In moving forward, the MTP, 2014-2016, seeks to consolidate the previous work programmes.
The general direction of the current MTP is again guided by the overall strategic elements of the Institute’s Vision, Mission and Core Values:
The CARDI Vision
The Center of Excellence in the Caribbean conducting research for development that creates wealth and competitiveness in the Region’s agriculture.
The CARDI Mission
To contribute to the sustainable development of Caribbean people by the generation, transfer and application of appropriate technologies through agricultural research for development.
The CARDI Core Value
Integrity, professionalism and excellence in everything we do.
The strategic framework, that has informed the Institute’s activities and functions during the last two medium term periods, continues to be relevant and valid for the MTP, 2014-2016. This strategic framework is defined by three Strategic Axes, namely Strategic Axis 1 – The Development of Sustainable Industries, Strategic Axis 2 – The Development of Strategic Linkages and Strategic Axis 3 – Institutional Strengthening.
Strategic Axis (SA) 1 is the principal framework for conducting the Institute’s business and delivering on its mandate. It is concerned with the deployment of Science, Technology and Innovation to contribute to the Region’s food and nutrition security and optimisation of the use and conservation of the natural resources. The key programmes under this SA include:
