Africa both in the past and presently has had a lot of good policies; these policies were meant to bring positive changes to Nation. However, it has been observed that most of these policies never achieved the purpose for which they were formed. Critical analyses show that there were no foundational plans upon which the policies could anchor. Also, lack of policy monitoring team and parameters for measuring the efficacy and effectiveness of these policies made their implementation difficult.
The dearth of organized professional planning body in the country to give technical support services to the various policy implementation committees/or agencies, and continuously monitor the performances of the economy and ensure it is meeting its development goals has given birth to this child of necessity.
The objective of this INSTITUTE is to advise the government, corporate bodies, communities, individuals and the organized private sector on major issues relating to economic and social policies. Specifically, the Institute of Planning aims to promote and advance planning issues to the community, private sector and academia; provide a forum for exchange of views on planning issue, develop management science approach to administrative matters in Africa; increase members knowledge through education, training, and research; develop and disseminate planning knowledge to the profession; establish and administer the professional interest of members; serve the public interest through the establishment of educational institution, including building of schools, civic centers, and educational research centers for the training of the mind and inculcation of morals; to print and publish journals based on planning, development and technology for social harmony and community development.; collaborate with government, communities, corporate organizations, professional unions, national and international agencies, foundations, institutions and other stakeholders in sustaining planning, research, technology, for community development; and to do any such other lawful things as are incidental or conducive to the attainment of the above objects.
