While continuing to pursue its strategic objectives, ESDC plans to respond to the immediate needs of its target groups.  The work that will be carried out by ESDC in the years to come will be focused, however, on the development of cooperative work and infrastructure.  Raising awareness among cooperative members and promoting greater grassroots participation will be a top priority for ESDC. 
In addition, we will continuously emphasize evaluating our performance and measuring successes through the use of comprehensive PM&E techniques and the deployment of an efficient database system for our beneficiaries, programs and stakeholders.  We will work on building new networks with new partners while strengthening the existing relations with our current partners
