A new course on Private Sector Development in Fragile Settings through Value Chains, targeted at the staff of the Office of the Chief Executive of the Government of Afghanistan, is taking place in New Delhi from 23 to 27 April 2018. This is one of the activities organized by ITCILO with the support of ILO New Delhi and in cooperation with VV Giri National Labour Institute of India.
During this five day training course, participants will apply the principles and phases of Value Chain Development for decent work (Sector Selection, Value Chain Analysis, Intervention Design, and Implementation) in situations of fragility; will contribute to the design and implementation of market driven value chain development projects using a participatory approach; and will apprehend the techniques for market systems facilitation, and appreciate the differences (and benefits) between facilitation and direct delivery. Colleagues from VV Giri will share case studies and lessons learned in the Indian context.
The course builds on ITCILO’s expertise in delivering training courses that are targeted specifically at situations of fragility, and will benefit from the experience of the Fragile States Desk at ITCILO in working specifically in Afghanistan and with Afghan constituents through the project “Promoting Rural Youth Employment in Afghanistan through Entrepreneurship Education and Vocational Training“.
The organizers would like to thank the Norwegian Govt, the Department for International Cooperation of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Italy, SIDA and DFID and Harakat, for contributing to making this event possible.
