the state strategic plan to the national strategic framework for the next three years.

“The aim of being here is to facilitate the state strategic plan which will guide the state to identify her priorities and monitor other plans of partners. We have a national strategic framework that was developed from provisions of the peace agreement in 2018 and ended in 2021. So we need to review it so that we work using it until 2024. That is why we need each state to develop its document and align it to the national policy framework,” he said.

“We have been taught how to transform Warrap state in terms of development through strategic development plans. All director generals are here and the team who came from Juba brought very crucial information which will help us to do our work effectively in our institutions in the few days to come,” Mangong said.
Madut Abol Salva, one of the participants said, “We have come here from different ministries including UN agencies to present their plans so that it can be aligned to the state strategic plan and within these two days, it is a good workshop and we have gained knowledge which can help one in his or her office.”
