To assist TARDA to effectively undertake its mandate as well as implement the various national policies and strategies of the government, UNCRD Africa Office has been providing technical assistance to the Authority. The technical assistance aims at supporting TARDA’s endeavour to design and implement effective regional development policies and build its institutional capacity for integrated regional development plan preparation.

In order to achieve this goal, UNCRD Africa Office jointly with TARDA organized two training workshops on regional development planning and plan preparation for TARDA region in the recent past. As a follow-up to the two workshops, UNCRD Africa Office jointly with TARDA, organized a training workshop on data analysis and validation for regional development planning and plan preparation from 10 – 12 July 2013 in Masinga Dam, Kenya.
