Project Description
El Salvador is facing important challenges in the design of policies that would improve the school to work transition of their youngsters, and may limit their exposure to risky behaviors. Given the lack of those policies, an important share of the youth population does not work and does not study. The policy challenges come, at least partially, from the lack of a competence based curriculum in the education system that prepare youngsters for the labor market. Argentina has made important progress on creating a competence based curriculum with the participation of the private sector. Through the CT-INTRA, authorities from El Salvador will learn from the policies implemented in Argentina.

Contact Information
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
