Developing and Managing Public Investment Programmes Course


Public investment programmes are essential for the growth and development of a country’s economy. They play two major roles. One is that they help to boost capacity for the delivery of public services. It is through capital assets like schools, hospitals, roads, and water works, among others, that we are able to provide the services the people have paid taxes for and expect from the government. The second role played by the public investment programme is that of providing support for the private sector to operate effectively and efficiently. It is through public sector investment programmes that infrastructure is built that makes it possible for the private sector to operate. As a result, public investments help to attract private sector investments. The overall result is that jobs are created and the economy grows faster. This programme is meant to help build capacity in the management and delivery of public sector investment programmes and projects.
