Premise: Resources commonly used by Agricultural and Rural Development (ARD) projects for effective service delivery, are land, finance, materials and human. Of these, human resource is about the most critical to manage due to rapidly changing environmental factors. Similarly, human resource management strategies adopted in ARD projects may vary with types of project, the size, time of implementation, the location and some other factors. Many ARD projects have failed because of poor knowledge and skills on human resource management. There is, therefore, the need to equip Project Managers with requisite knowledge and skills in human resource management in order to ensure the success of ARD projects.

Objectives: This course is, therefore, designed to equip participants with necessary knowledge and skills in human resource management strategies in the implementation of ARD projects. At the end of the course, participants should be able to:
  • Plan human resource needs in ARD projects; and
