Development Assistance Management (DAM) embodies several trans-disciplinary fundamentals aimed at demystifying many unresolved issues in management of development cooperation through the provision of technical support in addressing societal development needs. The introduction of development technical assistance and cooperation is a unique opportunity towards building capacity
in the new niche area in Southern African Development Community (SADC) and other African Union (AU) countries.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
The Institute for Development Assistance Management (IDAM) is a product of an agreement between Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF), Food and Agriculture Organisation of United Nations (FAO), University of Fort Hare (UFH) and it is located at the University of Fort Hare, Bhisho Campus in Eastern Cape. It was developed out of a need for a strong and effective support capacity in development cooperation in the field of agricultural and food security in South Africa and its neighbouring countries to prevent skills and capacity dependency from countries outside Africa for services.
