ILO Mozambique supports TRANSFORM training on social protection for Ministry of Economy and Finance
The Ministry of Economy and Finance of Mozambique (MEF), with ILO’s technical and financial support, kicked off today a three-day application of the TRANSFORM package for policymakers, which is taking place in Boane district (Maputo Province) between 14 and 16 November 2022. This training is being supported by the IrishAid-ILO programme “Inclusive Growth, Social Protection and Jobs” as well as the United Nations Joint Programme on Social Protection 2017-2023, funded by the embassies of Finland, the Netherlands, Sweden and the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office of the United Kingdom. MEF requested ILO’s support for building the institutional capacities and skills of 24 senior technicians and enhance their knowledge and awareness on social protection, equipping them to better address existing challenges in the planning, budgeting, and implementation of social protection in Mozambique. By doing so, the goal is to support a more effective and efficient social protection system in Mozambique and ultimately contribute to increased fiscal space for the social protection sector, enabling coverage extension, increased adequacy, and better access.
