news details

The Botswana Institute for Development Policy Analysis (BIDPA) was engaged by the Non-State Actors Capacity building programme to train Non-State Actors (NSAs) on issues of governance. This skills training workshop was held in Gaborone from  17-19 August 2011. The workshop was run by the BIDPA Public Sector Reforms Unit, and the facilitators included Dr Molefe Phirinyane and Dr Gape Kaboyakgosi with the assistance of  Ms Keneilwe Mooketsane.

This training intervention was part of the broader strategy to strengthen governance by building the capacity of the NSAs to enable them to participate and represent their varied interests effectively in the policy making process. In his welcome remarks, Mr Edward Mwale from the Non-State Actors Capacity Building Programme acknowledged that there are capacity related challenges among the NSAs and that one of these challenges lies in the area of research and policy analysis. As a result BIDPA experts were engaged in an effort to address this capacity gap.
