Better match training to employers’ needs and future labor market opportunities in developing countries; 

Identify gaps in the education system for basic level employable skills; 

Identify the links between education, health problems, gender gaps and life-long skills development; and 

Produce a comparable database across countries to serve as a monitoring tool for assessing employable skills development in LICs.”
