Skills for employment and productivity in low-income countries

A technical cooperation project implemented by the ILO, with funding provided by KOICA of South Korea. The project supports the implementation of the ILO/G20 Training Strategy for Strong, Sustainable and Balanced Growth. Project dates: December 2014 to December 2017.

The project main objective is to improve the access of persons from local communities to training and to opportunities to turn that training into productive livelihoods. It aims to reach a broader base of job creation, along the value chains in the extractive industry, through an accelerated development of human capital, focusing on the most vulnerable groups, especially young people and women.

The project places a large emphasis in the acquisition of skills for employability and in supporting services to the development of SMEs. The project is being implemented using the ILO methodology TREE (Training for Rural Economic Empowerment) and in partnership with government institutions. This will create the necessary technical capability for continuity after the end of the program. To provide strategic direction and coordination of the activities of this project, a Steering Committee composed by representatives of the Mozambican Government, the United Nations and the social partners would be created.
