Today's global society faces a myriad of complex challenges and opportunities. The urgent call for global and collective action on climate change offers a unique chance for us to unite and make a positive impact. Emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence and accelerated digital transformation are reshaping the future of work. These changes not only provide exciting opportunities for innovation but also increase the digital divide between those with access to technology and those without. Despite some economic challenges, including inflation and the occasional supply chain disruptions, there lies an opportunity to reimagine a more inclusive and sustainable economic landscape, promoting resilience and prosperity for all. Businesses and individuals are encouraged to leverage their adaptive skills to navigate these temporary hurdles and emerge stronger. In an era marked by increasing social polarization and tensions, the need for more cooperation, particularly in international Development Cooperation, is apparent more than ever. Amid recurrent polycrises, collective action is crucial to combat global uncertainties and challenges. This is where this Academy steps in, offering specialized training in Development Cooperation. Through the Academy, the comprehensive certification programmes, we empower you to become a part of the solution, contributing to collective progress and shared prosperity.
We welcome a diverse group of participants, including development practitioners, project managers, evaluators, professionals from multilateral organizations, government officials, and freelancers in the field.
