The potential of skills development and recognition for regulated labour mobility in the IGAD Region
07 Aug 2020
This scoping study focuses on the potential role of skills development and skills recognition for supporting and extending the impact of a regional system of regulated labour mobility within and between the Member States of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD). IGAD is the successor of the Intergovernmental Authority on Drought and Development (IGADD), which was created in 1986 by Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, the Sudan, and Uganda, with South Sudan joining in 2011. Drawing on substantial work of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and other actors in this area, the study uses the lens of skills recognition and focuses it specifically on seven IGAD countries.
