Senior staff of the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency (NPCA) and the African Union Commission (AUC) have undergone a week’s training at the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) in Cape Town, South Africa.
The training was delivered by ISS in partnership with the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) and the Pardee Centre for International Futures, University of Denver.
It focused on the analysis of Africa’s current development trajectory, with the intention of eventually being able to set attainable development goals for individual countries to achieve and monitor their progress over time.
The partners utilise a software system, called the International Futures (IFs) mode l - a tool for long-term thinking around country, regional, national and global futures. It enables policy-makers to understand the long-term impact of their decisions.
