Economic, sectoral, trade, and labour market policies have the potential to enhance employment promotion. To maximize effectiveness, these policies must be researched, designed, and implemented with care. In this course, participants focus on different policies and strategies that aim to promote decent jobs, particularly for informal workers in rural areas.

Subject matter specialists share insight and spark discussion
Course materials are rooted in tools and approaches developed by the ILO and its partners
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 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.
This course is based on methodologies, tools, and approaches developed by the ILO and its partners to forecast jobs creation and evaluate outcomes.
Participants learn how to assess employment impacts and close evidence gaps.
The goal of this course is to drive employment promotion through the monitoring and evaluation of decent work policies and programmes.
