The core curriculum of the programme is in response to capacity gaps in policy analysis and programme evaluation initially identified in a commissioned study by the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development (MFPED) titled “Public Sector Capacity For Policy, Gender and Budget Analysis –Capacity Needs Assessment” in 2009 and reaffirmed by the National Development Plan (NDP). It is a combination of policy analysis, programme evaluation and governance.
The programme is designed for practitioners, academicians, researchers in government, non-government institutions and institutions of higher learning and research. In particular, the program targets:
Staff of policy and planning units in central and local governments.
- Academics and researchers in policy studies including members of policy think tanks.
- Heads of government departments at intergovernmental levels (e.g. East African Community), central governments and Chief Administrative Officers of local and regional governments.
- Media consultants and those in lobbying and advocacy work.
