The State of Skills Development in Latin America

The State of Skills Development in Latin America

March 20, 2017, 9:00 - 10:30 AM EST
1155 15th Street NW, Suite 800
Washington, DC 20005

In spite of the socio-economic progress made over the recent past, Latin America still faces development issues that are closely linked to the lack of adequate human capital. How skilled are Latin America’s populations? Why should we care about skills development in the region? What are the roles of school, the workplace, family and the social environment in the formation of skills?

The Inter-American Dialogue is pleased to host the launch of a new report on the topic by CAF-Development Bank of Latin America, RED 2016: More Skills for Work and Life: the Contribution of Families, Schools, Jobs, and the Social Context. You can read the report here.
