  • Interview Pascale Junker

    The integration of cross-cutting themes such as environment and climate change into LuxDev projects and programs was one of the subjects at the LuxDev Summer Academy 2013.

    A question that always arises in discussions with our partners in the field is the priority given to certain investments within a budget. Should we build infrastructure that can serve the largest possible number of citizens or should we rather opt for ecological constructions which are most likely to be costlier?

Mid-term evaluation

Final evaluation

By implementing the project Support to the National Employment and Vocational Training Programme, the Agency intends to respond to one of the priorities of the second Indicative Cooperation Programme signed between Cabo Verde and Luxembourg, namely "strengthening human resources through education, training and any measures facilitating access to jobs ".

In this sense, the project looks at improving Cabo Verde's access to education in order to promote economic and social development.

With regards to infrastructure, the project built the vocational training centres in Praia and Sal as well as the Renewable Energies and Industrial Maintenance Centre. The project also allowed the relocation of the Employment and Vocational Training Institute HQ as well as the rehabilitation of the Vocational Training Centre of Sao Jorginho. In addition it  provided additional  equipment to the various exisiting technical and vocational teaching facilities.

Moreover, the project supported capacity building to enhance the needed skills for the day to day management of the institutions and the drafting of new curricula for new courses.

Finally all concerned parties promoted labour market integration by introducing new tools within the Employment and Vocational Training Institute.
