The report also argues that programs that focus onlyon skills development are unlikely to result in sustainable development of theindividual and that a more holistic approach to development is required. Thereport concludes that lack of coherence in delivery of education and training programs leading to qualifications aimed at youth living in rural areas as wellas arduous bureaucratic demands has forced service providers to opt out of thequalification framework and to revert to small scale independent delivery
