Promoting investment in skills and competencies acquisition by trainers and entrepreneurs in African countries

The Kigali Conference is a follow-up to the Abidjan Conference on “Youth Employment in Africa” held in July 2014. The latter brought together ministers and/or their representatives from 28 countries within the framework of the Inter-Country Quality Node on Technical and Vocational Skills Development (ICQN-TVSD).

On that occasion, the participants decided to implement a three-year plan of action (2014-2017) that is articulated around three priority themes/areas:

  1. Analyzing and operationalizing inter-country experiences and mechanisms for job creation that target more particularly the youth  ;
  2. Promoting investment in countries to support the acquisition of skills and competencies by trainers and entrepreneurs;
  3. Promoting the implementation of the education – training continuum.
