Skills Development for Balanced Growth in the Agriculture Sector: The Case of Lebanon
Drawing on recent research from the International Labour Organisation, this brief aims to highlight the importance of addressing skills mismatch in the agricultural labour market so as to spur agriculture sector development. This brief examines key factors which influence the labor market demand and supply of skills, while also providing an assessment of specific skills demand. Furthermore, the breif looks at key measures to be considered by the Ministry of Agriculture in Lebanon and other stakeholders to promote a responsive technical and vocational education and training (TVET) system. The ultimate aim of such a TVET system would be to meet labour market demand, address the socio-economic challenges of poverty eradication, the social status of farmers, as well as rural-urban migration and outmigration.
