Project Description

According to the bank, this Technical Cooperation seeks to generate knowledge about the current demanded skills by the market, the allocation of time in specific tasks and how skills evolve in time, to gain data on which skills will prevail in the future in the context of changes in demand and supply as an effect of the adoption of new disruptive technologies and other factors. The additionality of the TC is based on: 1) obtaining knowledge related to the perceptions of current necessary work skills; 2) gathering information regarding the time associated to task completion to capture detailed data on the duration and movements required to accomplish a specific task; and 3) the development of knowledge related to the perceptions of the skills necessary in future social employment. This TC is aligned with the Social Protection and Poverty Sector Framework, since it contributes to generate evidence that promotes the necessary conditions for the creation of new productive social jobs. It is linked to the Labor Sector Framework Document, due to the need to have quality jobs that face the multiple future challenges (including the onset of new disruptive technologies), and the Education and Early Childhood Development Sector Framework, due to the importance given to the improvement of human capital and new skills.
