Employment impact assessment is key to increasing the effectiveness of policies intended to promote decent jobs. Anticipating the impact of economic disruptions on employment or measuring the ex-post effects of interventions on jobs provides the evidence needed to improve the design and implementation of policies. In times of crisis of the kind the world is currently facing, the importance of timely and accurate assessment is greater than ever. In close collaboration with the Employment Policy Department of the ILO, the ITCILO is offering this course in an innovative e-learning format. Join us to learn how to assess the impacts of policies on employment, flexibly and without needing to travel!
This course will be of particular interest to 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; the staff of programme-management teams from private-sector entities, non-governmental organizations and community-based organizations; the operational staff of international organizations, regional development banks and bilateral donor agencies that design or finance programmes impacting employment.
