Event Description

Course on Local governance and rural decentralisation

Wageningen UR and the Royal Tropical Institute in the Netherlands are pleased to announce the organization of the international course on Local Governance and Decentralisation, to be held in the Netherlands from February 27 to March 9, 2012.

The past decade has seen a growing interest in the role of governance in stimulating local economic development and sustainable management of natural resources. The role of governments is shifting towards creating an enabling environment and to facilitating development rather than steering it. This has led to the understanding that local governance for rural development should be addressed as a multi-stakeholder process with interactions taking place at different levels amongst actors with different ambitions or perceptions. Participants will learn to deal with the complexity of governance and how to engage with different stakeholders to improve service delivery, steer local economic development and improve natural resource management. Participants will leave the course with increased understanding of their organization’s current and desired position, roles, and interests in relation to local governance for rural development.
