This program  on project appraisals and impact evaluation, gives the participants the vital skills and knowledge to successfully appraise and analyze projects.  It offers you the newest techniques and tools to handle project risks as well as uncertainties to guarantee profit margins as well as sustainability in times that are uncertain. It'll in higher level cover econometric effect evaluation theory and empirical ways for measuring effect of development plans (including randomization, regression discontinuity, and propensity rating matching). Practice and theory will be combined with it.

Duration:10 Days

Program Objectives:

• Undertake, Economic, Risk, Technical, & Financial Analysis to choose Projects to meet up with Organisational Objectives

• Conduct Financial Analysis applying Payback, IRR, and NPV

• Measuring and identifying Uncertainties and Risk

• Evaluate as well as Manage Risks with the latest techniques and tools

• Manage Uncertainties with Decisions Trees, Gannt Charts, Critical Path Analysis

 • Identifying whether the project is performing or perhaps not, impact assessment will help accountability function.

Who can attend?

This program focuses on Project Management Officials from NGO's, National Statistics Offices, Education Researchers, Government ministries, National Institutes as well as Planning Ministries, Central banks, as well as Faculty Researchers among others.
