Sustainable Project Design

Sustainable Project Design 4404 1080 ieeeeduweek

In humanitarian technology projects, it is necessary to consider the project’s impact on the local community holistically, in addition to industry and business measures. It is crucial to remember any humanitarian technology project’s goal is to promote the community’s welfare, and this goal supersedes the project’s specific objectives. This courses focuses on the early stages of project design, and specifically on sustainable and humanitarian technology practices in project management.
