COURSE OVERVIEW It is true that many countries do not develop as fast they could because of three primary factors; namely, limited resources, poor governance and non-conducive policy environment. There is ample evidence to show that even with significant amount of resources, a number of countries have tended to stagnate when their policies are wrong or misdirected. Governance and policy environment are closely linked. Capacity to formulate good policies is thought to be lacking in several of the development countries. This course on ‘policy analysis, formulation and management is intended to contribute to strengthening this capacity.
