Turkmenistan, Ashgabat, Sept. 21 / Trend H.Hasanov /
The United Nations Development Programme delivered a five-day Human Development course for the staff and students of the Civil Service Academy of Turkmenistan to support institutional development of the Academy to carry out successful programs of teaching and training of civil servants, the UN Ashgabat office reported.
The participants of the training course were introduced to the notion of human development, the essence and basic elements of the human development concept, its evolution and formulation of the human development index. They also learned about the difference between the sustainable development and human development and specifics of the concept application in conditions of transition economy.
Two leading experts in the field of human development from the UNDP Regional Centre for Eastern Europe and CIS in Bratislava (Slovakia) Andrey Ivanov and Mihail Peleah delivered the training for twenty six participants of the Academy.
The work in groups deepened participants' understanding of human development, its interdependence with sustainable development and economic growth as well as interconnection with e-governance.
"I hope that this course would help the students - the future managers and administrators of Turkmenistan - to be not just good managers and administrators but managers and administrators sensitive to human development and capable of applying this concept in practice," Ivanov said.
UNDP has been partnering with the Academy of Civil Service under the project titled "Enhancing the System of Civil Service in Turkmenistan" since 2010. The project contributes to improvement of the legal framework for civil servants and supports capacity development of the Academy of Civil Service to carry out successful programs of teaching and training of civil servants.
