Serier – Sida EvaluationDescription:
JobsNet was established as a referral system to benefit jobseekers, employers and self-employment seekers. The project was developed as a public sector-private sector partnership (PPP) between the Ministry of Labour and Foreign Employment and the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce with the ILO as technical adviser. The main findings in the evaluation report are that the public-private partnership was difficult to maintain due to the public partner's lack of commitment to this. Another important finding was that the project had focused on several activities without any potential to generate enough income to become sustainable, and therefore were recommended to focus on income generating core business.
