International course on Local governance and rural decentralisation, 11 - 22 September 2013, Wageningen, the Netherlands

Local governance for rural development is increasingly approached as a multi-stakeholder process with interactions taking place at different levels, and amongst actors with different ambitions or perceptions. Efforts of local governments are measured in terms of responsiveness and accountability to citizens; improved service delivery; its leadership in promoting pro-poor economic development; and its capacity to negotiate with the private sector, NGOs, local authorities and central government. As a participant of this course on local governance as multi-stakeholder process you learn:
-      how to deal with the complexity of governance and the engagement with multiple actors.
-      How to analyse existing complex situations, and develop strategies to develop opportunities and overcome barriers.
-      your organisation's current and desired position, roles, and interests in relation to local governance for rural development.

Interested candidates can apply to Wageningen UR Centre for Development Innovation for admission to the training. Click here to apply.
