Dear Ignacio, will this course be offered again in 2009-2010? Please also reply to my e-mail if possible since I do not follow this blog regularly. Best regards, Jens Andersson, consultant

This is an interesting course. However, can't this be offered free? I am from the Philippines. I am eager to learn; albeit the financial side of education or training like this make it impossible for me to participate. This involves policy consideration indeed on the part of training institutions, the WB particularly. May I know if the fee can be waived so I could take this course. Thank you.

Dear Jens, I am not organizing this course, but my guess is that it will be done next year again. I suggest you write directly to Shahid Khandker, Course Director, to see when it will be organized again. His contact information is in the description of the course. Best regards, Ignacio
