Unemployment and underemployment remain a most serious problem. Access to a suitably paid job is a key to poverty reduction. Actions aiming to better organise the labour market and encourage job creation are therefore crucial.
Moreover, a great many people do not enjoy any social protection; the slightest difficulty can plunge them into exclusion. The reform of social policies and strengthening of social protection systems are therefore major assets for sustainable development. Furthermore, actions devoted to the most vulnerable social groups (orphans, domestic violence victims, street children, young prisoners, HIV/AIDS infected persons, etc.) often prove vital to restoring seriously degraded situations.
SOFRECO's assignments in these fields focus on the following areas:
