NEED Expansion and Training Programs for 2014
The Network for Environment and Economic Development Burma is excited to announce the first round of training programs for 2014! We are continuing our LLET traning program in Chiang Mai and continue to expand our programs into Myanmar. NEED will have two different training programs in 2014.
LLET in Chiang Mai Thailand:
Our Model Farm Initiative in Chiang Mai will be hosting a three month long academic training focusing on Land, Law and Economics (LLET). This training will be very challenging and we have designed it to prepare participants to work in the fast changing areas of Land Rights, Foreign Direct Investment, Global Economics, Land Law, and Community Development in Myanmar. After completing this course, the participants will be encouraged to work to promote sustainable economic and community based growth in their areas. NEED is proud to offer this training two times in 2014. The first training will be late April to mid July and the second will be October to December. Each training will have 16 participants who must be highly qualified and have excellent English skills.
