The Namibian Ports Authority (Namport), in collaboration with UNCTAD and Port of Cork, Ireland, will train 23 port operators from the local port communities on the final module of the UNCTAD/TrainForTrade* Port Training Programme. Module 8, entitled “Technical Management and Human Resources Development” will be delivered by the senior manager from Port of Cork, along side senior managers from Namport that UNCTAD selected and trained as local instructors. Participants will improve their abilities to: evaluate the importance of equipment and infrastructure maintenance; describe the major tasks of the purchasing department (supply, spare part, etc.); define the goals and principal phases of human resources development policies; and explain the importance of qualitative and quantitative human resources needs analysis.
