APPLICATIO was commissioned by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH to develop an e-Leanirng course on "Measuring Employment Effects and the Use of M&E Results in Project Management and Planning". The course is aimed both at the monitoring and evaluation staff of GIZ projects whose interventions generate employment effects and at the planning officers within the FMB who plan and advise such projects.
As reflected in Sustainable Development Goal 8, the promotion of decent work is a key priority for many countries. As many developing countries struggle with high youth un- and underem-ployment, GIZ has become increasingly involved in the field of employment promotion. How-ever, along with GIZ’s involvement, the requirements of GIZ projects’ commissioners regarding the measurement and reporting of the employment effects generated by GIZ projects’ activities have grown as well.
