The Duke Center for International Development (DCID) recently held two executive programs designed for senior government officials. The first, held May 23-27, focused on designing decentralization strategies for sustainable development. Nine senior government officials and development practitioners participated.
The second, which began on Sunday, May 29, and lasts two weeks, is focused on strengthening the public policy, service delivery and negotiation capacity of senior-level officials in the Bangladesh Civil Service. This program was provided with support from the Government of Bangladesh Ministry of Public Administration. Fifty-three officials are participating in the program, which includes site visits to nonprofit human development organization FHI 360, Durham County and the Department of Emergency Management.
