System Dynamics-based Development Planning Course

MI Systems Dynamics
The Millennium Institute is pleased to announce the free course System Dynamics-based Development Planning, organized in partnership with the University of Bergen, Norway. The course emphasizes the importance of developing a holistic view of national development planning, and of cross-sectoral policy coherence to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Through case studies and practical exercises, participants develop expertise to understand, map, and analyze complex sustainable development challenges; and determine the best policy responses to them using a systems perspective.
The course is targeted at development professionals who are responsible for developing policies and programs aimed at meeting the SDGs, especially policy advisors/analysts, modelers, and implementation and evaluation specialists from government agencies, policy research institutes, and international development institutions.
The course is offered in two compulsory modules: a self-paced online module, from January 7 - March 1, 2019, and a four-week classroom module on the campus of University of Bergen, Norway, from March 11 – April 5, 2019.
