INSTRUCTIONAL GOALS

Africa is endowed with rich natural and human resources yet its people continue to languish in poverty. The continent's development is also hampered by widespread conflicts.

Research attributes this to a gap in stewardship and leadership. Politics and governance inform and drive critical decisions for stability, sustainable and equitable development.

This module addresses the glaring gap in leadership and governance in Africa, which has led to stagnation of African's human development and proliferation of conflicts, in spite of abundance of human and natural resources.

The module targets current and aspiring political leaders at all levels of governance: local/decentralized government, national parliament and political parties. The module also targets other individuals, institutions and organizations that work with politicians.

The module is designed to equip participants with knowledge and skills in transformational leadership in politics to transform their spheres of influence.
