Recently the FHI 360 Workforce Connections team conducted a Labor Market Assessment (LMA) to better inform USAID and DFID on youth employment and entrepreneurship programming in Zimbabwe. The Labor Market Assessment team assessed overall economic trends and patterns, the resulting demand for skills, and the supply of workers and skills, in order to arrive at conclusions and recommended interventions.
At the Microlinks Seminar Event, participants had the opportunity to hear about some of the tools and approaches to carry out a Labor Market Assessment, using the Zimbabwe experience as a case study. The session covered key approaches and tools used in the field, provided a forum to discuss them, and solicited feedback for their improvement. Presentations were led by Lara Goldmark, MA, Project Director, Eleanor (Nora) Sohnen, Workforce Development Advisor, and Tadzoka (Taka) Pswarayi, Zimbabwe Youth Consultant.
