The Central Tibetan Administration in Dharamsala, India, released its second Integrated Development Plan (IDP) for the Period of 2004-2007, at a ́high level Executive Meetingî of members of the Kashag (Tibetan Cabinet) and other officials. According to a press release issued by Dr. Kunchok Tsundue, Chief Planning Officer of the Planning Commission of the CTA, ́[i]t took over 13 months [to prepare the 2004-2007 IDP] since its pronouncement on 10th July 2003 when the background and guidelines to this plan was released. During the formulation process, all stakeholders were involved in the various stages of the plan in a participatory way. The plan comes at a time when the Tibetan population in exile is undergoing a major demographic, socio-cultural and economic and political change.î However, the success of this plan depends largely on the availability of funds to implement the selected projects. The IDP 2004-2007 focuses on 534 projects and programs with a total budget of US $ 23.2 m, out of which more than US$ 15 million needs to be raised.
