Sida Advanced International Training Programme 2023 for Liberia and Zimbabwe
ITPLZ Applied Land Governance Liberia Zimbabwe!
The Sida advanced international training programme (ITP) focuses on land related issues and should be viewed in light of the ability to develop trusted public administration with a clear mandate to enhance impartial, transparent and reliable services to society – a practical implementation of “good land governance” into Applied Land Governance.
The programme participants will also be exposed to the latest developments in land management. Moreover, they will create regional networks to share, exchange and acquire knowledge on how to effectively deliver services enhancing people’s, and in particular women’s, land rights in a participatory and transparent manner. The methodology used assumes that your organisation wishes to carry out change regarding these aspects and is willing to invest its own resources to make change happen.
