Would you like to acquire competencies in the strategic setting and management of resilient and sustainable PPP policies, regulatory frameworks and operations? What are the internationally harmonized tools and approaches that demonstrate how PPP in particular can facilitate achievement of the SDGs and help to build resilient and inclusive societies and greener economies?
The ITCILO brings you this online tutor-based programme, offering certification of participation, to provide comprehensive answers and ideas, with many practical examples, on how to use the potential of PPP for the achievement of sustainable development objectives.
