Global Learning Program:

Linking “know-how” with “do-how”

Global Learning Program

IIRR continues to be an international training and enabling institution of choice for development practitioners, backed by more than 63 years of field practice and experience in Asia and Africa. Since the first training program in 1965, IIRR’s training courses continue to evolve with time.

High Quality, Efficiency, And Effectiveness

These are priorities for IIRR Global Learning Program in delivering international training for development practitioners. From planning to the evaluation phase, we regularly review our training methods and the results we achieve. We also put a high value in tracking the applicability of training approaches that we pass on to every participant.
