This course provides a critical introduction to development; it serves as the foundation course for the Master’s in Sustainable Development Practice (SDP) (http://web.africa.ufl.edu/mdp/index.html), and is a required course for the Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Development Practice (http://www.africa.ufl.edu/mdp/ academicprograms/sdpcertificate.html). Both conceptual and practical issues are addressed in relation to each course topic with a multi-disciplinary approach that focuses on the inter-relationship among approaches, comparing Latin American and African contexts. Participants learn to describe and analyze complex development issues, paying particular attention to cross-sector linkages and regional comparisons.
