Eurasia Hub invites applications for the the next iteration of the multi-mode course in Natural Resources for Sustainable Development. The multi-mode course offers a well-grounded knowledge of theories and practices for efficient resource governance.
The overarching goal of the course is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary:
- For building a broad understanding of policy challenges in resource governance with an in-depth focus on legal and fiscal framework and revenue management
- For developing policy scenarios with integrating analytical tools into forming an information base in the decision-making process
- For assessing most relevant decisions in achieving specific country development priorities
- For building up necessary skills in usage of data in evidence-based policymaking
The program aims to facilitate a rich dialogue about best practices from around the globe and their lessons for countries in the region. Lectures, online Q&A’s and discussions combined with practical work based on case studies, policy analysis and peer-to-peer exchange with practitioners and experts in the field will help participants to share experience in reversing the resource curse for sustainable development.
Due to the pandemic the Hub is organizing the second iteration of the course and will conduct the online phase in Fall-Winter 2021. The participants of the new iteration will get a chance of joining the residential phase together with the most successful participants of the online course from the Spring 2020 edition. In addition to modules in data analysis, revenue management and contracting the participants of the online phase will have an opportunity to participate in an online discussion with Eurasia Hub experts on the consequences of COVID-19 for resource-rich countries of the region.
