Young Southern African professionals and their institutions were invited to Gauteng from 22 October to 2 November 2012, to participate in an intensive training programme designed to support the development of the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

The programme, "Managing Regional and Global Governance (MRGG) for Africa", provided participants with the opportunity to engage with a range of key actors in SADC, including the SADC Deputy Executive Secretary for Regional Integration. They also honed their analytical and decision-making capacities in a series of debates and simulations.

The purpose of the training was to assist these young professionals to contribute meaningfully to SADC and the challenges associated with governance in Southern Africa in an era of intensified globalisation.

The training programme is a unique collaboration between African and European governments, civil society and stakeholders. It was jointly implemented by the International School of the Diplomatic Academy of the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO), the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA), the Africa Institute of South Africa (AISA), the Institute for Global Dialogue (IGD), Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the German Development Institute/Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE). This training programme is part of the Managing Global Governance (MGG) Programme, an initiative of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) since 2007.
