    ADA exists to promote sustainable development and social change, creating a framework for debate, policy, advocacy, analysis and systematic study of global and macro issues which build the capacity of the collective to undertake the development education and research.

    The goals of the organization are to:

    1. Strengthen the capacity of member agencies and other organizations to execute development work at the local level.

    2. Create and respond to opportunities for learning and exchange, especially among non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and community based organizations (CBOs), particularly in Jamaica and the wider Caribbean.

    3. Enlist support for and understanding of the work of development NGOs from wider society.

    4. Build ADA as an effective organization.

    5. Undertake research and analysis into, and demonstrate alternative approaches to development.

    6. Shape policies affecting the lives of people in Jamaica and the Caribbean region.

    7. Bring community organizations more actively into the work of the Association.

    8. Diversify ADA’s funding options and build a more independent financial base.
