How (not) to enhance women’s access to dignified work and earnings?

This evidence review analyzes the effectiveness of skills training programs in increasing women’s access to dignified work and improving their earnings. The review synthesizes findings from diverse contexts to evaluate how different program designs, implementation strategies, and contextual factors affect outcomes. It highlights that while some programs show positive impacts, particularly when tailored to the local economic needs and cultural contexts, others demonstrate moderate or no significant effects, often due to mismatched training content or insufficient adaptation to participants’ socio-cultural environments.
