UNCTAD/TrainForTrade Port Management Programme – Delivery of Module 1, Cycle 2 in Abuja
05 - 09 March 2018
Nigerian Ports Authority
Abuja, Nigeria

Key Issues

​From 5 to 9 March, Mark Assaf, along with port experts from Dublin Port Company, and from Ghana, as well as senior managers from Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), will co-deliver Module 1 of Cycle 2 in Abuja. 26 managers from the port communities of Nigeria who are enrolled in the UNCTAD TrainForTrade Port Management Programme will participate in the first of eight training modules.
 
Module 1 of the Modern Port Management Course, "International Trade and Maritime Transport" focuses on the important and strategic relationship of ports, shippers and shipping companies. It further examines the factors that condition port activities that are an integral part of international trade.

Nigeria is currently undergoing the second 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, 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.
