Narrative description of Project:
The National Skills Development and Market Linkages Program, (NSDP) is one of the National Priority Programs announced by President Karzai in Berlin in April 2004. The Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs, Martyrs and Disabled has been designated as the lead Ministry for the program, which is scheduled to run over a period of 15 years.
The overall goal of the NSDP is to contribute to the socio-economic recovery of Afghanistan through the provision of a national skills development and vocational education and training system that is responsive to labor market needs and that provides Afghan women and men with the knowledge and skills for decent work.
The purpose of the NSDP GIS-based Structured Database system (STP-GB-SD) is to enable NSDP to store and maintain essential information about a wide range of Technical Education and Vocational Training (TVET), Training Providers (TPs) and individual Training Institutions (TIs), located across the country. This will eventually become part of the accreditation and standards setting provision for the NSDP.
