The informal sector is an important segment of the economies and the civil society of developing countries. But there is only limited information on the extent and type of programs in education and training within this sector. This volume documents studies sponsored by the UNESCO Institute for Education and the International Labour Office on education, training and skills-formation for decent work in the informal sector. It examines interesting cases of skills-transfer combining social and technical learning processes and draws lessons pertinent for the design and implementation of education policies and programs.
