Course objectives

Under the overarching theme of rural poverty reduction, the course’s overall aim is to strengthen the capacity of individuals and institutions to participate in the design and implementation of programs addressing land reform and administration with a special focus on the rural poor.

The course builds on a foundation from previously delivered Land Policy courses. It reviews the conceptual foundations and practical applications for land policies in the African context. It seeks to promote a multi-stake-holder dialogue on policy and institutional reforms in land issues for a sustained increase in rural well-being in African countries. The course also provides a platform for an exchange of experiences and good practices among countries on land policies.

This event also provides an opportunity for participants from various backgrounds to be exposed to cutting-edge knowledge on issues related to land policy and administration. Moreover, it aims at developing participants’ analytical skills to enhance their capacity to play a proactive role in the design, implementation, and monitoring of land programs. Finally, this course seeks to provide a forum to help identify additional learning needs in the countries, and to help shape a multi-activity learning program on rural development in collaboration with local institutions.

  • Participating countries and partners
    • The course is delivered through the Global Development Learning Network (GDLN) sites in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Accra (Ghana), Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) and Kampala (Uganda). These sites feature multimedia distance learning centers equipped with interactive videoconferencing facilities and computers with full connectivity. Participants in South Africa will attend the course videoconferences at the World Bank country offices in Pretoria. Participants from Kenya will attend the course videoconferences at the World Bank country offices in Nairobi.
    • The course is delivered in collaboration with the GDLN and the World Bank (AFR).

February 9 Enhancing land access through land reform

Learning approach

This distance learning course will be delivered in English over four consecutive days. Participants meet once a day for about 4 hours in the respective country sites. The course combines synchronous and asynchronous learning approaches. Synchronous learning will be facilitated through interactive videoconferences, simultaneously linking all participants with guest speakers. For asynchronous learning, participants will have access to the course’s website containing additional learning material, and can participate in an electronic knowledge exchange forum. A course facilitator is present throughout the course in each of the sites.

Those interested in taking this course should have a broad understanding of land issues in Africa. Participants who have attended all four modules will receive a certificate at the end of the course.
