  • Programme Description

    Programme name: Management of Development

    Specialisation: Rural Development and Communication


    Responding to changes in rural environments

    Rural development organisations work in a dynamic environment in which natural hazards, political turmoil, conflict situations, economic downturns or a lack of resources may all cause or affect change. One effect of this situation is well recognised by organisations working in rural extension, training and communication: a growing desire to increase good governance, public participation and informed citizenship.

    To respond to such circumstances, many of these organisations need to re-orient their approaches and policies, and to design new operational structures and communication processes. For this, they need well-educated managers and well-trained staff. This often calls for retraining. To keep pace with developments - especially those regarding communica­tion and innovation systems - managers may need new competences that equip them to work in a range of complex multi-actor settings.

    The programme is especially suited to all mid-career professionals whose work in agricultural and rural-development organisations focuses on information and communication. It is also of particular interest to consultants specialising in projects with on rural-development organisations and their client groups.
