FIELD Report No. 17: Skills for Jobs for Growth

November 2013 — This report explores workforce development, also known as human capital development, as a field of its own that encompasses education systems, economic development policies and programs, and corporations’ human resources functions. Through three country case studies, the report argues that workforce development programs must align economic development strategies, education systems and employers, and the needs of target groups.
