Project General Description

The present project is a support for the Human Resource Development Strategy and Social Impact Assessment which has received a Grant from the African Development Bank’s Technical Assistance Fund for Middle Income Countries. This project includes two components: Component 1: Development of the National HR Development Strategy. This component will systematically address the human capacity constraints that the country is faced with at present while making efforts to diversify the economy. Component 2: Development of a SIA framework for the Seychelles. This second component will facilitate the empowerment of the country in assessing the impact of development projects.

Project Objectives

The principal objective of this project is to help build capacity within the Government to address the challenges of lack of qualified national human resources and a framework for conducting social impact assessments. The specific objectives of the operation are twofold: a) to support the development of the National Human Resources (HR) Strategy in order to transform the knowledge and skills base and diversify the economy; and b) to support the development of a Social Impact Assessment (SIA) framework which aims to assess the social impact of large scale developments, for example in the tourism industry.
