Strategic Port Policy, Governance and Stakeholders Management Course

Strategic Port Policy, Governance and Stakeholders Management Course

There is now a growing dynamic policy, governance and stakeholders’ management interests in the port industry that has created an aggressive challenge to performance, productivity and efficiency. This movement is characteristically manifest in strategies such as concession, private-public participation and other vested interests in port ownership, control, transparency and accountability. These new initiatives in the structure of ports have resulted in rapid reforms as a response to local interests consequent global challenges.

Privatisation and liberalisation are altering the traditional models of port governance, ownership and management. These radical changes have brought regulatory policy complexities, misapplication and continued policy review in which each party to the agreement endeavours to protect its interest whilst striving to profit from it only to end up more confused. The pressure of stakeholders on port concession is enormous therefore to manage them by good governance is the beginning of achieving policy objectives. In this light, this programme is the main solution.

The broad aim of this programme is to provide a comprehensive overview, strategies and management models needed in policy formulation, review and analysis as a platform for good governance in the process of managing stakeholders’ objectives.

* To increase the knowledge and expertise of course participants on strategic policy
formulation and implementation in port operations and management.
