    Research Support to the Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation

    With the African population expected to double by 2050, 20 million new jobs are needed annually. The increasing importance of employment creation led the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) to establish the Special Initiative "Training and Job Creation“. The GIGA offers research support and advice to this initiative.
