EC: Education, knowledge and skills, Employment and social cohesion

The thematic programme ‘Investing in People’ pursues a broad approach to development and poverty
reduction, with the general aim of improving human and social development levels in partner countries in accordance with the United Nations Millennium Declaration and the Millennium Development Goals (MDG). It is based on Article 12 of the Development Cooperation Instrument (DCI) and is detailed in the Strategy Paper for the Thematic Programme 2007-20132. Part of the second theme of the programme “Education, knowledge and skills” is dedicated to vocational education and training in view of increasing knowledge and skills and employability on the job market, contributing to active citizenship and individual fulfilment on a life-long basis. Part of the fourth theme of the programme “Other aspects of human and social development” is dedicated to addressing inequalities and promoting social cohesion, fostering the Decent Work Agenda3, employment and promoting the positive social dimension of globalisation.

The global objective of this Call for Proposals is to contribute to the elimination of poverty and social
exclusion of people dependent on the informal economy and other vulnerable groups.
