Policies and practices in the Global South

Policies and practices in the Global South

The Global South accounts for a significant portion of adult and youth in unemployment and the informal labour sector, representing an important target population for sustainable development strategies and policy. South-South collaboration and knowledge exchange can help to address the skills gap for these populations while fostering productive relations between Southern institutions. NORRAG’s work in this area focuses on knowledge production and dissemination on the ongoing policies, practices, and lessons learned from Southern TVSD programs and South-South collaborative projects.
