The Center for Development Policy (CDP) is a Pan-African non-profit and non-partisan think tank that exists to contribute to the development of African countries through policy analysis and capacity building. CDP prioritizes endogenous development solutions and promotes local and empirically tested innovations that have contributed to development in Africa. CDP works with local partners to study, document and share lessons and best practices. Our uniqueness is that we not only offer policy advice and analysis to organizations but also build their capacities through training and technical support in order to undertake evidence-based development interventions.
At CDP, we offer different short-term trainings and other tailor-made trainings requested by organizations. CDP courses are offered by CDP experts and associates from within the country or abroad.
It is against this background, CDP is organizing a training workshop on “Policy Analysis & Preparation of Policy Papers (Position Papers, policy brief, Policy Pitch and Memo).”
- Course Description
Public policy analysis has been described as the art and craft of “speaking truth to power” (Wildavsky, 1987). Policy analysis aims to provide evidence-based analysis and advice to guide the development and implementation of public policy/programs — and influence the work of government agencies and other stakeholders. Policy analysis requires several distinct sets of skills: an understanding of the policy context, an appreciation for the concerns of diverse stakeholders, technical knowledge of analytical tools, and the ability to develop and communicate the preferred course of action. This course introduces the concept of policy analysis, provides practical skills and analytical frameworks for analyzing, evaluating and communicating policy proposals to the decision-makers and other stakeholders.
Policy analysis does not end with the selection of a course of action/policy option, there follows communication of policy option. This involves different forms and techniques. In this course, you will learn different forms and techniques of communicating outputs of policy analysis. Those involved in the policymaking process will learn how to prepare and communicate policy proposals, while those involved in advocacy will learn how to package and communicate your evidence-based position to your target audience.
