Training programs

Description

Vocational skills are key to enabling the BOP to participate in value chains. Low productivity linked to the lack of marketable skills acts as a significant barrier towards inclusive business growth. In this context, vocational training is an important precursor to BOP participation and to inclusive growth.

Partnerships with different stakeholders, in particular with the private sector, can assist in skills-needs identification, curriculum development, training delivery, as well as certification and assessment processes to ensure that vocational training is aligned with market demand and subsequently leads to employment. The private sector can also be involved by providing internships, apprenticeships, and job opportunities as well as coaching and mentoring support.

COMACO and the Lundin Foundation: The COMACO Landscape Management Project Environmentalnd Social Management Plan

Community Markets for Conservation (COMACO) is a model for rural development that uses inputs, improved technologies, and markets to help small scale farming communities achieve increased food security and incomes and more effective conservation of the natural resources they live with. The COMACO model works on the premise that households will reduce destructive use of their natural resources if their basic food and income needs are met in ways that remove the need to rely on destructive resource-use practices.
