ILO Has US$18 Million Available to Promote Employability in Mozambique

The International Labour Organization (ILO) announced on Thursday, August 4, the availability of US$18 million to support the development and implementation of actions, policies and measures to promote work and employability in Mozambique.

According to the news portal Club of Mozambique, “the ILO representative in Mozambique, Paulo Selemane, who was speaking during a meeting of the Coordinating Council of the Ministry of Labour, explained that the initiative, to be implemented through the ‘Moz Trabalha’ project already in its second phase, will last for five years and will be funded by the Swedish International Development Agency.”

“Regarding the future, we want to mention that the successful implementation of ‘Moz Works’, with funding from Sweden, and recognising the challenges throughout its implementation, has allowed the creation of bases for the elaboration of a second phase of the project, for which the ILO has already signed the funding agreement with a resource mobilisation value of US$18 million for the second phase,” he said.

The interventions of the ‘Moz Trabalha’ project are aimed at creating productive jobs and decent work for Mozambicans, particularly for young people and those living in poverty.

“The interventions will always be anchored in the national priorities established by the Government and will focus on results that are sustainable and use an approach that promotes the structural satisfaction that will characterise all the interventions,” stressed the official, who added that cross-cutting issues will also have primacy in the project’s intervention, with emphasis on social dialogue, job creation, dissemination of international labour standards and promotion of gender equality.
