The ILO works in partnership with Irish Aid, the Government of Ireland’s programme of development assistance, to create greater opportunities for women and men, including people with disabilities, to secure decent work and income.
The ILO is conducting research into the identification of skill needs to help smooth transition to a low-carbon economy. The work is co-funded and jointly managed by the European Commission.
The project is designed to build on existing job-creating programmes of the government and NGOs, make those programmes more effective, and fill in gaps where programmes are weak or do not exist. The project uses a systems approach to identify emerging and potential employment, income generation and small business opportunities and deliver training in practical skills and business management. It is based on the ILO methodology of Community Based Training for employment and income generation.
