African Programme on Rethinking Development Economics
TIPS also co-facilitates the annual African Programme on Rethinking Development Economics (APORDE) programme, and co-hosts a number of seminars.
APORDE is an annual training programme that brings together academics, policymakers and civil society representatives to investigate economic development options. It aims to build capacity in economics and economic policymaking. The course is run for two weeks and consists of lectures and seminars taught by international and African economists. Since 2007, APORDE has trained over 150 people, most of them from African countries, in the public sector, civil society and academia.
A number of lectures open to the public are also held during the two week programme.
APORDE 2016 will take place in the second half of the year.
