UNDP Workshops & Courses


The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) are pleased to announce a series of workshops and e-Learning courses for the benefit of diplomats, officials and professionals from Sub-Saharan African countries.

More than 1,100 African negotiators and decision-makers will directly benefit from training and networking activities which incorporate UNITAR’s innovative methodologies and long-standing experience in knowledge transfer and executive learning.

This joint UNDP/UNITAR project will not only contribute to achieving sustainable growth and attaining the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in the African region, but also provide a practical example of making use of existing synergies within the UN system with a view to “Deliver as One”.
