The Gambia’s Judiciary is set to hold its maiden donor conference to generate funds for the implementation of its strategic plan 2021-2025.
“It captures our vision of an independent, effective and efficient justice system for upholding the rule of law whose mission is to ensure fair, impartial and timely delivery of quality Justice by competent, motivated and committed staff. The values of commitment, fairness, impartiality, integrity, independence, transparency, excellence, accountability and accessibility will continue to guide us in delivering our mission. The Strategic Plan 2021-2025 comprises 8 key goals set out to facilitate the attainment of the objectives set by the judicial arm of the government,” Isatou Dabo Esq, Press Liaison Officer for the conference stated.
The 4-year strategic plan would provide the roadmap and a framework for enhancing the capacity of the judiciary to deliver quality Justice and enable the institution to discharge its role as a key player in securing good governance of the country.
Strengthen its independence and its autonomy; upgrade, expand physical infrastructure and improve the work environment; restructure and strengthen organizational and institutional capacity; improve the efficiency of court processes and service delivery; develop human resources capacity required for a modern judiciary; harness ICT to support court function; improve access to the courts and tribunals; and improve communications and stakeholder/court user confidence in the judiciary are the 8 key goals of the Judiciary.
The much anticipated donor conference is slated for the 3rd and 4th November 2021 to generate funds to enable the Judiciary implement its activities under the strategic plan.
