Why this project is a Good Practice example:
This project is a good practice example because it focuses on addressing the challenges to support and power citizens to be job creators.   We aim to identify barriers to sustainable development and advocate for regulatory reforms in the labor sector as well as for regulations in concerned institutions aimed at  ensuring adequate  climate for sustainable economic progress and empowerment.
Impact Evaluation:
Lessons Learned:
We have learned some valuable lessons across our experiences designing and implementing the project.

There will be resistance to changing labor laws, which will be a significant challenge that must be approached with a medium-long term timeframe.

A programmatic initiative that is across government departments, NGO, and international institutions will have to continually build effective partnerships.
