Inclusive Economic Development in Colombia

10 Sep 2013

Nine job centres in eight cities of Colombia are running business counseling, entrepreneurship training, and career opportunities particularly to internally displaced persons, women, indigenous people and persons with disabilities. The centres are dynamic spaces where the public, private and academic sectors interact, offering a one-stop citizen service to expand the opportunities that guarantee their productive economic inclusion. These centres provide guidance and comprehensive services to strengthen capabilities and expand access to employment, self-employment and entrepreneurship opportunities. The project is generating an enabling and innovative environment for economic inclusion.
