Key Issues

​From 7 to 9 March, Mark Assaf and a port expert from Dublin Port Company, as well as senior managers from Ghana Ports & Harbours Authority (GPHA) will take part in the juries that will assess the case studies of 24 managers from the port communities of Ghana. The participants have successfully completed the 8 modules of the Modern Port Management Course. Those who pass their dissertations will receive UNCTAD's Modern Port Management Certificate. Moreover, the top three best dissertations will have the opportunity to be  featured in the upcoming Port Management Series.

Ghana is currently undertaking the fourth cycle of the Port Management Programme. Each training cycle lasts 16 to 24 months and comprises 240 hours of in-class training and a final thesis. The deliveries are both led by UNCTAD and international instructors (Irish port experts), as well as local senior managers who have completed the training-of-trainers workshop. This strategy highlights the uniqueness and strength of the TrainForTrade Port Management Programme in fostering local ownership to reinforce its impact and ensure sustainability. Local ownership of the programme is achieved through a financing scheme that requires the participating ports to provide the majority of the programme's funds, and by gradually shifting responsibility for implementing the programme from UNCTAD to the participating ports.
