Abstract

Combines literature reviews, World Bank operational experience, commissioned studies and field research to develop an approach to the design of public training policies which can help policymakers create economically sound and practically feasible strategies. The central concerns are when and why governments should finance or provide skills training. Issues addressed include establishing market-oriented manpower planning, employer and private training, the role of training in poverty reduction, and priorities for international assistance. -M.Amos
