Broad objectives are identified for each priority area. Actions, based on different strategies, are listed under each of these objectives, with intended year of implementation. The action plan is supported by a monitoring framework, which includes indicators and targets at both action and objective level. Details on the SAP preparation process and the monitoring and evaluation framework are given in later sections.
This is the third Strategic plan of the Commission. The first SAP was prepared for 2009 – 2014 and the second SAP was developed for the period 2015 – 2019.
