Comprehensive National Development Planning Framework (CNDPF)


The Comprehensive National Development Planning Framework (CNDPF) embodies the long, medium, and short-term development planning approaches to be exercised by different actors at various levels of administration. It describes the categories of development plans, corresponding planning stages, roles and responsibilities of different actors, and the respective planning time horizons and cycles to be followed. The framework also outlines the processes through which plans produced by sectors and local governments will be integrated into the national development plans. The CNDPF thus presents a new approach to development planning that is highly iterative, participatory, and inclusive.
