The ILO aims to share the outcomes, lessons learned and recommendations of the assessment of the concluding project "Skills Development, Employment Services and Local Economic Recovery for the Construction Sector" with partners and stakeholders. The workshop will also present eight new vocational training curricula, updated using the expertise of international and local experts, as well as discuss future activities to ensure the project's sustainability.
