The interdisciplinary learning programmes typically last 2 weeks. The target audience is people with different backgrounds and from different disciplines – all working in Danida supported programmes and organizations. Read more about who can apply.
The programme portfolio is prepared considering the following key criteria:
- Reflection of the Strategy for Denmark’s Development Cooperation, The World 2030 (2017). The Strategy presents several strategic priorities: peace, security and protection; migration; sustainable growth; human rights, democracy and gender equality
- Programmes also demonstrate Danish commitments to UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), especially SDGs #5 (gender equality); #7 (sustainable energy); #13 (climate); #16 (peace, justice, institutions); #17 (partnerships). Denmark has decided to prioritize these SDGs in a drive to focus Danida’s efforts on areas where they do the most good and where they strategically employ comparative Danish strengths and advantages as well as Danish expertise and experience
The decision on which programmes to offer is based on the following two criteria:
- Existing programmes which are in high demand: these are annually revised in order to encompass recent thematic developments as well as recommendations from participants and others
- Programmes which are new or re-tendered: these are based on emerging needs in Danish development cooperation engagements and/or needs expressed by Embassies
Wide variety of programmes
The 2017 learning programme portfolio includes a wide variety of courses in public sector management as well as cross-cutting issues, e.g. anti-corruption and sustainable development.
