APORDE was created in 2007 at the initiative of Nicolas Pons-Vignon (then at IFAS, now at Wits University) and Nimord Zalk (the dti). Nicolas went on to act as Course director for the first 7 APORDE, before joining the Scientific Committee. IFAS and AFD acted as key partners during the APORDE set-up and consolidation phase, before the IDC took over the programme’s organising.
