The Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development is to hold a High Level Workshop to validate the Employment Diagnostic Analysis (EDA) Report. The engagement to be hosted by Hon.  Janat B. Mukwaya, Minister for Gender, Labour and Social Development will seek input into the final EDA Report before submission to cabinet.   The workshop will take place on 25th April, 2018 at Imperial Royale Hotel and will among others include Ministers, Permanent Secretaries and the Private Sector.


The Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development (MGLSD) with support from the Swedish Embassy and the International Labour Organization (ILO) commissioned an Employment Diagnostic Analysis (EDA), which exercise was completed towards the end of 2017. The EDA was undertaken to understand the nature of the deficiency of productive employment and to identify the constraints on and opportunities for enhancing inclusive job-rich growth. This was also done to provide a sound knowledge base for effective policies, institutional reforms and other interventions aimed at reducing deficiency of productive employment and as such, serve as ‘an instrument for the broad-based charting and understanding of the country’s’ landscape of employment and economic development’. The study is particularly timely given the renewed interest in employment and inclusive growth within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular SDG 8 on promoting sustained inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
