The African Land Policy Centre (ALPC) formerly the Land Policy Initiative (LPI) was undertaking a training needs assessment of land policy makers, practitioners and other stakeholders in partnership with PLAAS, the Institute of Land and Agrarian Studies of the University of Western Cape, to identify the capacity gaps and propose key areas for tailored short training courses on land governance. This process aimed at proposing a response to the dynamism of land use and institutional change in Africa by enhancing capacity and especially skills of the land sector professionals.
The ALPC and PLAAS are conducting an Expert Group Meeting to get feedback and finalize the report on “Training Needs Assessment of Land Policy Makers, Practitioners and other Stakeholders in Africa” with the following objectives:
- Examine and validate the Training Needs Assessment of Land Policy Makers, Practitioners and other Stakeholders in Africa
- Agree on the nature of the training course in terms of design
- Garner buy-in, support and collaboration in delivery of the short-term training Course on land governance
This Expert Group Meeting is scheduled to take place on the 23 April 2018 at the UNCC, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and will gather about 15 experts and resource persons selected from academia/research institutions, government Institutions, the Private Sector, CSOs and developments partners.
