Summary
"This anthology brings together basic facts and features about basic learning needs and skills of people working and living in the informal economy and presents case studies from different countries examining educational and training strategies for meeting these learning needs. It portrays the grave problems facing educational and training systems vis--̀vis informal sector workers, even as they look at holistic solutions that take into account principles of lifelong learning and innovations in informal, non-formal and formal adult learning. It also shows that a growing awareness that education is a human right of fundamental significance to promoting decent work and humane living conditions." "Although this book mainly addresses learning programmes for the informal economy in countries in South Asia, Latin America and the Arab world, the lessons learnt have much to offer to researchers, policymakers and practitioners working in other parts of the world."--Jacket
