As part of this year’s annual performance plan, SANAC plans to strengthen its administration, communications and fundraising capabilities. In 2017, the body will need to fundraise R25 million to replenish reserves, according to the report. Meanwhile, fund transfers to partners and NGOs are expected to steadily grow between now and then.

In a forward to the 48-page report, SANAC CEO Dr Fareed Abdullah notes that significant investment will be devoted to monitoring and evaluation functions. This coincides with a mid-term evaluation of the National Strategic Plan (NSP) set to take place this year. The recently created oversight body the SANAC Trust is also expected to publish four reports annually that include recommendations to improve NSP programmng.

The report also adds that all SANAC structures are now “fully functional and effective”, including the plenary, civil society forum and technical task teams. However, the report also notes that sectors continue to struggle.
