Non Core Short Courses
The sectoral and thematic short courses offered by IDEP target mid-career and senior policy makers, including those who are responsible for policy analysis, development planning, sectoral policies, revenue mobilisation, budgeting, gender equality, environmental sustainability, employment creation, external trade relations, regulatory oversight, and (international) negotiations with other development players. It is planned to organise five thematic and sectoral short courses annually. The courses will bring participants together from across the entire continent. Each of the courses will be designed for 25 participants. Although the primary targets for these type of courses are public sector officials, consideration is given to any interested participant from the organised private sector, African parliaments, and civil society. Each year, one of the sessions of the sectoral and thematic short courses is organised as a training of trainers initiative.
