Training Development Leaders in Amman, Jordan

“If you coordinate action by means of developing mutual trust- not only interpersonal but also between organizations- then the linkages between those that design the policy and those that implement policy are much more effective”.

– André Corrêa d’Almeida, Coordinator of Executive Education at the Center on Globalization and Sustainable Development (CGSD)

What is the value of an executive education training program to development practitioners in Jordan? As young leaders from NGOs and government agencies participate in a variety of skill-building programs, hosted by CGSD and the Institute for Sustainable Development at the Columbia Global Center in Amman, they reflect on their experience of discovering multi-sectoral and collaborative approaches to their work. Following the workshops, many participants even organize ongoing policy task forces to tackle common challenges in their field. The program offers a unique opportunity to build the capacity of the future leaders in sustainable development in the region.
