High quality training and capacity building is critical to successful strategic policy development and implementation. Furthermore sustainable policy implementation requires strategy development and elaboration supported by clear methodologies and guidelines for improving policy development and implementation. The programme leverages on our broad experience in training and capacity building for the purpose of individual upgrading and up-scaling of skills as well as institutional strengthening through workshops, seminars, conferences.

In addition, the programme seeks to create high-quality training courses that highlight real-world issues and ensure some continuity of knowledge in key policy fields. Professional development training, capacity building and sensitization concepts and practice are thus offered to mangers and officers involved in strategy and policy development and implementation. The ongoing Strategic Research and Policy Writing course is one such professional advancement programme being carried out by the centre.
