ACP DYSS operational strategy is to engage the ACP Diaspora youth in Europe and ACP country grassroot levels to identify, design, implement, monitor and evaluate youth development interventions across the ACP regional communities in various disciplines not limited to: Agriculture and Food Technology, Education and Research, Youth Leadership, Governance and Development, Environmental Policy and Sustainability, Community and Public Health, ACP DYSS Youth Conferencing, Entrepreneurial Management and Innovation, Social Integration and Welfare.
The strength of the operational strategy is partnership, which promotes Pan Africanism, to ensure sustainable solutions and growth in ACP countries. It works with three pillars: Re-Education, Working Together and Collective Self-Realization.
At the first pillar (Re-Education), ACP DYSS identifies and partners with ACP diaspora youth in ACP region (local development organizations and/or community youth), Europe and UK to discuss the different developmental issues confronting ACP regions and to identify problems/issues that need to be solved.
At the second pillar (Working Together), ACP DYSS works together with ACP diaspora youth in Europe, UK and grassroot to jointly engage in project identification, research and project development activities (planning and design) to establish facts and findings in order to find solutions that work best.
At the third pillar (Collective Self-Realization), ACP country region youth and ACP diaspora youth in Europe and UK work together to monitor and evaluate projects, attain sustainable solutions at ACP countries grass root regions, advocates for integration and prosperity in host countries and in all achieve collective: self-realization, self-determination, and self-empowerment.
