Mission & Disaster Reduction Profile

The objectives of SADC underscore the need to ensure that poverty alleviation is addressed in all activities and programmes with the ultimate objective of eradicating it. HIV/AIDS is as a major threat to the attainment of the objectives of SADC and therefore is accorded priority in all programmes and activities.

The SADC Mission is to promote sustainable and equitable economic growth and socio-economic development through efficient productive systems, deeper co-operation and integration, good governance, and durable peace and security, so that the region emerges as a competitive and effective player in international relations and the world economy.
