|Role of Government and Politics in Economic Management|
Knowledge sharing for sustainable development and global prosperity is one of the key motivations behind establishing the KDI School of Public Policy and Management. The KDI School understands the valuable role the GDLN can play as an effective tool for knowledge sharing and learning. As part of the designated GDLN Korean Center's knowledge exchange initiatives, the KDI School is launching blended learning programs that focus on Korea's successful development experiences.
Transitioning from an aid recipient to an OECD-DAC donor, Korea has achieved remarkable economic growth, democratization and social stability in less than half a century. With Korea's extraordinary development widely acknowledged and documented, Korea is in a unique position to share its experiences with emerging and developing countries as a means of furthering global development.
This course will be an opportunity for participants to stimulate critical thinking about development experience and to reflect on their respective economies as well.
• Learninig Objective
Economic and demographic trends over the last generation have combined to achieve substantial global economic growth. This process is most notable in dynamic Asian economies, where rapidly emerging middle classes are increasing the resource intensity of global consumption. Their demand is an unprecedented challenge to global food production systems and food security. These lectures will review the main issues that arise in this context, examine how they will be influenced by climate change, and discuss policy options to meet the food needs of a growing and more prosperous world population.
