About CDP

The Center for Development Policy (CDP) is a Pan-African non-profit and non-partisan think tank that exists to contribute to the development of African countries through policy analysis and capacity building. CDP prioritizes endogenous development solutions and promotes local and empirically tested innovations that have contributed to development in Africa. CDP works with local partners to study, document and share lessons and best practices. Our uniqueness is that we not only offer policy advice and analysis to organizations but also build their capacities through training and technical support in order to undertake evidence-based development interventions.

At CDP, we offer different short-term trainings and other tailor-made trainings requested by organizations. CDP courses are offered by CDP experts and associates from within the country or abroad.

It is against this background, CDP is organizing a training workshop on “Policy Design and Implementation.”

2. Course Description

The current development thinking suggests that the policy framework is critical in determining the performance of firms, farmers, households, and public sector bodies. This course will introduce the concept of public policy, the policy design and the policymaking process, and the determinants of policy success and failures. Trainees will be introduced to the policy instruments and how and when they are used to implement public policy options. Different international and local practices will be covered. The course will analyze how effective public policy address market and government failures, and how ineffective policies affect development outcomes. This is a practical course that will involve international and local case studies. It enables those who advocate for policy change to know when and how to realize their agenda. The course involves practical assignments and sharing of practical experiences from policymakers, technocrats and experts in the field of public policy. The course builds a foundation for the next course of policy analysis and communication of policy analysis/products.
