Public Policy Executive Programme - Uganda - Registration of Interest Form

Overview

While governments have successfully implemented management improvements over the past decade, many still struggle with the issue of successful policy-making and implementation.

Common problems include: rushing to solutions without thorough analysis, elegantly written policy documents without adequate implementation arrangements, lack of integration of policy-making into annual and medium-term budgeting leading to inadequate funding for new policies, lack of imagination in the choice of policy instruments and methods of implementation, formal evaluation processes than have no impact on policy on the ground.

Course Description

This 5-day course is designed to enable middle and senior-level officers in public, private and social sectors to participate effectively in the development of policies and implementation schemes that deliver results.

Programme Objective

This programme aims to impart knowledge and enhance participants’ understanding of how public policy is made including, how to design policy instruments, effective implementation schemes, monitoring and evaluation schemes and effective communication strategies for policy decisions.
