    Every 5 years the ILO’s Global SIYB team publishes the Global Tracer Study to analyse the outreach of the SIYB programme. SIYB has a long track record of promoting development of micro and small enterprises as a strategy for creating more and better employment for both women and men. The programme was created in the 1980s and has since been implemented in more than 100 countries. This year we are launching the 2016-2020 Global Tracer Study, providing quantitative and qualitative data on the implementation of the programme between 2016 and 2020.
