Education is central to development. It is a powerful equalizer, opening doors for all people to lift themselves out of illiteracy which is one of the most prominent predictors of poverty. In particular, competency enhancement education and training for government officials is especially important. As the autonomous authority of local governments gets stronger, the skills required are changing. The demand is increasing due to the expanding duty and skills required to meet internal and external needs for capacity development.

In general, the objective of training government officials is to increase their knowledge & skills and to increase their motivation to perform. Governments often require officials to take essential training programs that are specifically developed to improve their ethics as government officials. They may also establish certain incentive mechanisms to meet the need for career development of its staff.

By attending this learning series, participants will learn how training and education for public officials contribute to promoting sustainable and broad-based development of a country. It is expected that lessons will be drawn from case studies and recommendations will be suggested for partner countries, corresponding to their situation.

This program welcomes anyone who has an interest in this topic.
