Skill Up Nepal
For Green Economic Growth
Skillup Nepal project aims to accelerate the inclusive economic development activities in Province 5, 6 and 7 of Nepal ensuring economic growth (prosperity), environmental protection (planet) and inclusion of most vulnerable and marginalized population groups (people) in the developmental mainstream. The project will establish at least one Green College in each Province for inter-province learning sharing, exchange and evidence fine-tuning for policy influence.
A large part of these young people will be living in rural areas, where most of them will seek their first job. They will however face great difficulties in finding decent and productive employment in rural areas because the employment opportunities that the current agrarian society/ system can offer are very limited. Rural areas are nevertheless full of resources, most of which remain untapped offering a large potential to generate economic opportunities in the agriculture and food sector. The effective utilization of those resources will help address the rural employment challenge.
Most rural youth are typically employed on a casual or seasonal basis as contributing family workers, subsistence farmers or unskilled workers. The development of skills provision, production support services and the post-harvest section of agricultural value chains, including processing, marketing and retailing, could create many jobs for rural youth. Farm and off-farm jobs can be created along agricultural value chains linked to agri-business development and related support services.

Some of the gaps in current skill development ecosystems are information management system and knowledge management, standardize course curricula which is market & scientifically vetted, quality & participatory based training material, quality trainers, post-training support like trainee business planning & mentoring, establishment of credit & market linkages, and convergence with other agencies. To bridges these gaps, there is a need of an incubation centre established based on multi-stakeholder convergence framework, which effectively delivers the multiple services.
