The IAU Strategic Plan, SP, started with a consultative process in Paris in January 2008 and there was considerable feedback and input, leading to several drafts of the plan, which was finally adopted at the IAU General Assembly in 2009. A key element in this plan was the creation of an IAU Office of Astronomy for Development, OAD, to plan and coordinate the extended programme.
