Research Support for the Special Initiative "Decent Work for a Just Transition"
In this research project, we analyze the employment effects of several measures of the BMZ Special Initiative "Decent Work for a Just Transition" by means of a set of rigorous impact evaluations. The goal of the Special Initiative and the subject of our research are job creation and improvements in job quality in selected countries in sub-Saharan Africa. In addition, we examine intervention impacts on beneficiary mobility. We focus on three specific programs, each in cooperation with GIZ: A program to professionalize craftsmen in Ghana (with various training institutes, the Ghana Institution of Engineering, Bosch, Vodafone, and Consolidated Bank of Ghana as local partners), a training program for young, disadvantaged women in Ghana (in cooperation with companies in Accra, Kumasi, and Tamale), and a program to further develop small and medium-sized enterprises in Côte d'Ivoire (together with Agence Côte d'Ivoire PME).
