Global Development Learning Network (GDLN) Universitas Indonesia will be participating in a blended learning seminar series conducted by KDI School of Public Policy and Management Korea. This is the third year of GDLN UI’s participation in this exciting seminar series. Participants who want to enroll should have background and experience in infrastructure development &  public private partnerships. Below is a short description taken from the syllabus.


Infrastructure development in both an economic and social context has contributed greatly in Korea’s socioeconomic development. With more than 15 years of rich experience in implementing Public-Private Partnership (PPP) projects in infrastructure, Korea has grown and developed into a stable and profitable PPP market, largely due to the government’s systemic support and management, including the implementation of the PPP Act. Reflecting on such development experience in infrastructure and PPP, Korea is in a unique position to share its experiences with emerging and developing countries as a means of furthering global development.

This GDLN Distance Learning Seminar Series is designed to explore the rapid economic growth of Korea and evaluate the effectiveness of Korea’s development strategies in two parts: 1) Infrastructure Development & Public-Private Partnership and 2) Sessions for Infrastructure Development. The Infrastructure Development and PPP component of this course will include a general overview of Korea’s infrastructure development with some contextual background, and discuss some of Korea’s major challenges and case studies of the PPP system. The second component will go into detail on the areas of infrastructure, such as transport, ICT, and environment, addressing the role of infrastructure in Korea’s economic development.

This course will be an opportunity for participants to think critically about development policies in these areas and how it has affected the country’s overall development strategies. Participants are encouraged to take part in discussions and share their professional experiences in the area of human capital and innovation policies.



Applicants who have participated in all seven of the videoconference seminars of the Series are eligible to apply to attend the Face-to-Face Training Program in Seoul. Those who complete the course successfully will receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the course.
