We share the vision to equip youth in developing and transition countries with industrial skills and know-how. To make this happen the LKD Facility:
- Establishes, in partnership with global manufacturing companies, training academies for the operation and maintenance of heavy equipment in different sectors.
- Expands access of youth to job-oriented and market demand-driven skills in the sectors of logistics and industrial maintenance of machinery.
About the LKDF
The Learning and Knowledge Development (LKD) Facility is a platform that promotes industrial skills development among young people in emerging economies. Working with the private sector through Public Private Development Partnerships, the LKD Facility supports the establishment and upgrading of local industrial training academies to help meet the labour market’s increasing demand for skilled employees, ultimately contributing to inclusive and sustainable industrial development.
The long-term success of local industrial academies that partner with the LKD Facility is ensured through constant monitoring of economic, environmental and social impact. UNIDO manages the facility, on behalf of the LKDF partners.
