Public Employment Programmes (PEPs) - or public works programmes - provide an adaptive policy instrument that can create employment, fill gaps in the provison of assets or services, complement social protection provisions and contribute to Active Labour Market Policies (ALMPs). This course will discuss how PEPs can contribute to a sustainable recovery.
The course targets at people who are concerned with or work in the fields of public investment, employment strategies, active labour market policies, social protection, public employment programmes and rural and urban development. It aims to reach a mixed audience of development actors, including senior government officials, representatives of social partners, programme managers and staff of research and education institutions. A gender-balanced participation is sought.
