The Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) and the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction will be organising a training course in May in Nairobi on Decentralisation and Local governance. The Course will focus on recent thinking about decentralization, local governance and participatory and inclusive rural development in the Eastern and Southern African context.
The aim of this course is to strengthen the capacity of development practitioners, policymakers, government line ministry staff and programme managers, to engage in complex local governance processes. As a result of the course, the participants will be able to:
- Analyze the institutional context of decentralization and local governance with a specific focus on rural development, gender and power relations
- Develop strategies to improve the involvement of different actors in local governance and rural development (including social and productive service delivery, land governance, natural resource management, local economic development)
- Practice a broad range of methodologies and approaches to support learning, lobby and advocacy, citizenship and participation
- Challenge the impact of one’s own intervention and identify opportunities to contribute to change.
Deadline for application is 15 April 2010. More information on link below.
