The STRENGTHEN2 project, hosted in the EMPINVEST branch of the ILO’s Employment Policy Department, is a joint initiative of the European Union and the ILO that focuses on job creation through investments. Launched in August 2020, the project is a strategic partnership with the overall goal of leveraging employment impact assessments to promote the creation of more and better jobs in sub-Saharan African countries.
The project pursues two objectives:
- To enhance the capacity to assess the employment outcomes of EU-funded investments and programmes in sub–Saharan African partner countries”.
- To support African partner countries and EC services to design and finance investments and programs with a relatively rich employment content.”
