Kwame Nkrumah Uni­ver­sity of Science and Technology (KNUST) - Kumasi, Ghana

The programme in Ghana is about sus­tain­able development plan­ning and management within the context of regional plan­ning. Participants are taken through the rudiments of plan­ning at the local and regional levels. The programme takes cognizance of rapid urbanization and population growth being experienced in the developing world as well as climate change. The emphasis of the programme is on the techniques, methods and tools for regional plan­ning. It seeks to involve and address the needs of multi-stakeholders within the region.

Participants acquire skills in sus­tain­able and participatory plan­ning and management approaches as well as techniques. Based on these, students study a particular district and involve stakeholders to plan for the area's development. During this process, students meet local govern­ment officials, local politicians, community leaders and other relevant stakeholders involved in district development.

As part of the course work, students take re­search methods and statistical techniques which will prepare them for the field work of their Master Thesis and the workshop.  The courses in governance, political and sociology of development are specifically oriented toward the Ghanian context.
