Course Brief

This course is about innovative ideas in the management of the resources available in our countries. It is intended to help build capacity in creatively applying the scarce resources to meet the increasing needs of the people for economic growth and development. The thinking behind this programme is that Africa faces enormous challenges in addressing poverty in the face of dwindling resources and therefore needs to be innovative in applying the resources available. It will be devoted to analyzing case studies and best practices available that show how others have innovatively applied scarce resources to address their problems.

Who is the course for?
