From the field: How rural communities are being empowered and deciding on quality jobs and skills needed in their areas

Implementing the G20 Training Strategy: The “Skills for Employment and Productivity in Low Income Countries”, a project being implemented by the ILO, with support from KOICA of South Korea.

Unemployment and underemployment are major concerns throughout the developing world, but are particularly acute in Mozambique. Tackling these challenges requires effective measures to increase employment opportunities for the growing supply of labour, in particular women and men living in rural areas, with the relevant and quality skills they need to enter the labour market. The “Skills for Employment and Productivity in Low Income Countries” project being implemented by the ILO, with support from KOICA of South Korea, addresses the need to create more quality jobs and increase the employability of vulnerable groups, in particular young women and men in Mozambique. The ILO’s Chief Technical Advisor in the country, Ana Cristina Paulo, talks about the project, now approaching the midpoint of its three-year period.
