en Financial Management for Development Projects (OPEN)

Financial management is more than an administrative and control duty. Rather, sound financial management is a critical prerequisite for successful project delivery. Timely and precise financial data are indispensable for effective decision making, as well as for corrective action by project management staff, to enhance the prospects of timely completion, within the planned project budget and scope, of deliverables. Participants learn to design and operate project financial management systems in accordance with sound professional standards and the requirements of donors and governments. The course also explores the content of periodic financial reports on development projects.

en Risk Management in Development Co-operation Projects (OPEN)

This course deals, in a practical manner, with project risk management as a management technique that can be used to handle risks associated with development cooperation and public-sector projects throughout the cycle. These projects are often planned without any specific emphasis on risk, but with an exclusive focus on project interventions, plans and budgets. In practice, however, such projects evolve in high-risk environments, in contexts that are characterized by high levels of complexity and uncertainty and with the involvement of multiple stakeholders. This course is designed to address this gap and help participants establish a framework for the application of formal risk management to development cooperation and public sector projects.
