  2. Inclusive labour markets for job creation in Ukraine

    1 December 2017 - 1 December 2022

    In view of the complex labour market situation the new ILO program funded by Denmark goes for an integrated approach based on three pillars. The program will modernize the services of the Ukrainian public employment services enabling them to offer more effective and inclusive active labour market policies. A strong skills component aims at closing the skills mismatch by better alligning the skills of new labour market entrants with the demand from the private sector. Finally, the program will support social dialogue mechanisms to solve critical issues such as informal employment, wages, or gender discrimination.
