The Policy & Economic Development Unit aims to contribute to sustainable economic growth for the Falkland Islands and to play a major role in facilitating economic development to meet the Islands' broader socio-economic objectives as set out in the Islands Plan and the Economic Development Strategy.

The Falkland Islands has a hierarchy of interlinked development policy and strategies that provide a strong and effective framework for all aspects of development on the Islands. These documents are updated and revised regularly to take account of progress with various projects, new events and opportunities, and evolving economic conditions.

The Falkland Islands' policy framework, which cascades down as a hierarchy from overall goals to specific annual plans and targets, is illustrated in the diagram below.
