ECOWAS Countries (12 January – 13 February 2105)
UNCTAD through its TrainForTrade programme launched the TrainForTrade Project in West Africa in early 2013, to strengthen capacities in the area of e-Commerce. As part of this project, and in cooperation with the ECOWAS Commission, TrainForTrade will run a second SPOC (Small Private Online Course), part of MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses), on “E-Commerce for Practitioner” from 12 January to 13 February 2015, in English and French, starting with module 1 “An overview of e-commerce”. ECOWAS countries in West Africa have been invited to participate in the course and over 100 participants have already registered. The training course is designed for experts involved in the business of E-commerce and will be followed by face-to-face courses. In each country, a TFT technical tutor will facilitate the delivery at local level. This activity is funded by the United Nations Development Account.
