The Strategic Plan is the ILO's medium-term planning document. It is the expression of the strategic orientation of the Organization, what it aims to achieve and how. It describes the broad goals that are sought by the end of the planning period, sets medium-term priorities as identified by ILO tripartite constituents and provides a framework from within which biennial programme and budget documents are defined and progress is assessed. It applies RBM in identifying the results expected for the period, within a framework of outcomes, indicators and targets. This results framework drives ILO assistance to constituents and forms a coherent basis for cooperation with ILO partners and for the design of ILO development cooperation programmes.
