Privatsektorentwicklung und Finanzdienstleistungen

Der Privatsektor spielt eine Schlüsselrolle in Transitionsländern. © DEZA/Suzanne Linder

Arbeitslosigkeit und Unterbeschäftigung zählen nach wie vor zu den gravierendsten Entwicklungsproblemen in den Partnerländern der DEZA. Nur wenn mehr Menschen Zugang zu produktiver und angemessen entlöhnter Beschäftigung und damit zu Einkommen erhalten, können die globale Armut nachhaltig reduziert und die Millenniumsentwicklungsziele (MDGs) erreicht werden.

Privatsektorentwicklung

Dem Privatsektor kommt als Motor des Wirtschaftswachstums in Entwicklungs- und Transitionsländern eine Schlüsselrolle zu.

Jugendbeschäftigung

Die Berufsbildung für Jugendliche muss auf den Arbeitsmarkt abgestimmt sein und gezielte Angebote umfassen.

Finanzsektorentwicklung

Durch die Förderung des Zugangs von armen Haushalten, Bauern sowie kleinen und mittleren Betrieben zu Finanzdienstleistungen kann deren Teilnahme am wirtschaftlichen Leben verbessert und ihre Verletzlichkeit vermindert werden.
