  2. Need to provide a secure and conducive working environment (chamber, offices, committee rooms and other facilities).
  3. Need to reach out and educate the public to appreciate the role of the Assembly.
  4. Need to establish and align the organizational units for efficiency and increase staff capacity to meet current and future workload and challenges.
  5. Need to effectively manage land and other natural resources.
  6. Push for improved governance and social accountability by the political leadership.
  7. Capacity building needs.
