UNDP's mine action senior management training course is a continuation of a successful project that began in 1999. The project is designed to enhance the management skills of senior level managers in national mine action programmes and NGOs; management training has the potential to significantly impact a programme's productivity and effectiveness. The initial course package was developed in 2000 and since then, has consistently been updated and further developed to meet the needs of the senior level national mine action managers.

* Training modules include: strategic management, organization theory, management science, change management, equipment procurement and maintenance, economic and financial principles, leadership skills, human resource management, personal skills, planning and forecasting, and logistics management.
* Courses will include a focus on mainstreaming mine action into development, and inclusion of a gender perspective into mine action programmes. Although the course has a particular focus on mine action, it also provides background on other areas of work related to conflict prevention and recovery.
* Specific mine action case studies will provide opportunities for students to apply these management topics to their daily work. Management training manuals have also been developed for use by local trainers and students. The manuals cover: timetables and module objectives, detailed teaching points, individual lesson plans, teaching support material for each lesson, notes on subject delivery for instructors, and student notes.
* The syllabus will be tailored to the specific needs of each mine action programme, taking into account varying cultures, skill levels, programme stages of development, and course sizes.

* The management skills of national senior managers in mine action programmes and in other areas of work releated to conflict prevention and recovery will be strengthened.
* One global senior level management training course will be delivered in 2007 (the budget covers training services, student travel, meals, accommodation, monitoring and quality assurance.)
