A SCAR Strategic Plan is a forward-looking vision of what SCAR should do to achieve its mission, vision and goals. It provides an internal and external overview of SCAR and is a framework and guide to conduct SCAR activities in the coming period.
The previous SCAR Strategic Plan 2011-2016 ended in late 2016. The preparation of a new Strategic Plan for the period 2017+ was begun in 2015 to allow adequate preparation and discussion. This culminated in a document presented to the SCAR Delegates at the XXXIV SCAR Meeting in Malaysia in August 2016, and the finished version being in place by the end of 2016. The new Strategic Plan went into effect on 1 January 2017.
