UNDP brings On-line training to Grenada

In an increasingly technologically savvy world, those with no Internet experience are inevitably left behind. In light of this, 100 citizens of the small Caribbean island of Grenada are scheduled to participate in an eight-week UNDP program of on-line training on June 6th, facilitated by the Virtual Development Academy world campus initiative with the launch of the Harvard/CBI.

The on-line training is geared to equip public and private officials who engage in negotiations with the skills and knowledge to achieve their professional objectives. These include development and implementation of projects and programs in partnership with international and governmental stakeholders and participation in regional and global processes and forums dealing with relevant issues.

Yet another example of how small initiatives can create large impact.
