The Institute of Rural Development Planning (IRDP) is a corporate body established by the Parliamentary Act No. 8 of 1980. The Act provides a legal framework for the Institute to be established as an important national centre for provision of training, research and consultancy services in the field of Rural Development Planning and Management with main objective of alleviating qualitative and quantitative shortage of skilled manpower within the framework of sustainable capacity building directed towards reducing poverty and attaining sustainable development.

IRDP strives to enhance and strengthen capacity for Rural Development practitioners by providing post-secondary education and training, research and consultancy services.

IRDP is thus a multi-disciplinary and multi-sectorial institute empowered to oversee and coordinate the provision of expertise to in-service and pre-service personnel involved in Rural Development Planning in the country.

Since its establishment, IRDP has been shaping destinies in planning and research methodologies focusing on the future prosperity of its students. As a result, graduates with IRDP qualifications have made valuable contributions in their fields. They are a proof of our unique approach of learning and training methodologies.

In recent years, the Institute also has made progress in building new infrastructure so as to provide a conducive teaching, learning and working environment for both students and staff. These include a library, the first and second academic blocks and the multipurpose hall.

All along from the time of inception of the Institute of Rural Development Planning (IRDP) in 1979 and enacted in 1980 by the Act No. 8 of Parliament, one concept that has kept our minds galvanized to date has been our commitment and dedication to making IRDP a centre of excellence for academic deliverance and professional orientation in pursuit of rural development planning and management.


With this concept, and under IRDP stewardship, provision of training programmes and public services through consultancies, long and short courses, and tailor-made outreach programmes that inspire and engage people from grassroots to middle class levels has been made possible. All these are done to expedite rural and urban poverty reduction for sustainable development among our people of whom about 80 percent depend on rural economies and live in rural areas.


IRDP being a higher learning institution in the country with the mandate to oversee and co-ordinate the provision of expertise to in-service and pre-service personnel involved in Rural Development Planning in our country, has a mission that focuses on facilitating the process of rural development planning by providing top quality training and education, research and public services.


As a result, IRDP is well placed to guide and orient different practitioners of development planning in the planning process by delivering relevant professional competence, skills and knowledge. Moreover focus is given on the concepts, appropriate approaches, procedures and relevant methods and techniques required in the implementation of development policies, strategies and plans at different levels.


From this background, I therefore, welcome interested applicants who want to benefit from our rural development and planning experience to use the services provided by IRDP. Applicants interested to study at IRDP are warmly welcome to join us in this interesting but challenging profession.


IRDP believes that human efficiency is the crucial factor in nations reaching their full socio-economic potential thus has continued offering top quality and competence based demand-driven long and short term training programmes, researches and public services to different stakeholders. In lieu of this fact, IRDP has over the years, continued to develop its staff capacity and competence in different aspects of development planning and management to meet the current and emerging demands in the field as well as challenges brought by globalization which need urgent and amicable solutions in planning for development in general and more importantly, in planning development for rural communities.


Thus, IRDP offers programmes in: Regional Development Planning; Environmental Planning and Management; Population and Development Planning; Project Planning and Management; Governance and Sustainable Development; and Development Finance and Investment Planning programmes leading to Postgraduate Diplomas, Undergraduate Degrees, Diploma, and Certificate Awards.


It is my sincere hope that our current and prospective students and other partners will continue to use IRDP services as we strive to contribute towards alleviating qualitative and quantitative shortages of skilled manpower within the framework of sustainable capacity building directed towards reducing poverty and attaining sustainable development.
