Jobs Measurement and Employment Impact Assessment
This course aims to improve the design and implementation of policies intended to promote job creation by building the capacity of all relevant stakeholders to identify, measure and assess the employment effects of economic, sectoral, trade-related or labour market policies. In particular, the course will impart the competencies needed to make informed decisions about how to best measure and evaluate the results of interventions to promote decent jobs for women and men, with a particular focus on vulnerable groups such as youth, rural populations and informal workers.
This course will be of particular interest to: (1) government officials involved in the design and implementation of policies impacting employment, in particular the staff of ministries of labour and employment, economy, planning, education and training; (2) the staff of programme management teams from private sector entities, non-governmental organizations and community-based organizations; (3) the operational staff of international organizations, regional development banks and bilateral donor agencies that design or finance programmes impacting employment.
