Due to the constant growth of Africa’s population (population doubles to a total of 2.5 billion people until 2050), the continent is in need of twenty (20) million new jobs annually. This goal is only achievable in cooperation with the private sector. In order, to realize employment-related investments with companies, the Special Initiative works in three areas of intervention;
The Special Initiative “Training and Job Creation” works to make business locations and industries economically more attractive (through a cluster approach). It intervenes to support industrial parks, to improve export opportunities, and to address various obstacles to investment, e.g. lack of skilled workforce or customs clearance.
In addition, the Special Initiative “Training and Job Creation” fosters sustainable investment. It works with companies (e.g. on feasibility studies and financing for enterprises), develops joint projects with enterprises (e.g. on training and upskilling), and establishes sustainable value and supply chains (e.g. by improving quality in supply industries).
Furthermore, the Special Initiative “Training and Job Creation” promotes the SME sector by improving the business environment and enhancing competitiveness, to help companies enter new markets, and to boost cooperation between Ghanaian and German SMEs.
