Program Description

Learn about public policies and efficient projects; contributes to economic and social development in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Promoting economic and social development in Latin America and the Caribbean depends on many factors; and one of the most important is public management: a complex process, in which many actors participate, with different visions, ideas, objectives ... How to survive in this context and achieve development efficiently and effectively?

We have an opportunity for you! The Inter-American Institute for Economic and Social Development (INDES) of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has created three online courses that, together, will provide you with the tools to achieve it:

  1. Management of Subnational Governments for Results
  2. Management of Development Projects

What should we pay attention to in order to achieve adequate public management? How to plan, manage and properly evaluate a project or a public policy? How to get the most out of the data and visualizations we receive for public policy decision making? And, of course: what success stories can we find in Latin America and the Caribbean?

Develop your skills and abilities in the hands of IDB experts and invited organizations. Videos, readings, discussion forums, comic strips, case studies, practical exercises ... these are just some of the resources you will have to learn.
