The success and sustainability of market systems programmes depends on how well they understand - and can therefore influence - private sector business models towards sustainable, inclusive growth outcomes.

But how well do programme staff really understand the intricacies of business and financial analysis?

This webinar highlights the findings of a recent ILO The Lab report - Business models for decent work - which investigated four case studies of business models supported by MSD programmes.

Programme leaders from EYE: Enhancing Youth Employment (Helvetas Kosovo) and Road to Jobs (ILO Afghanistan) will share how they evolved business models in relationship with partners.

The webinar will finish with clear guidance on how to use the ILO report in conjunction with teaching guidance from the MSD Competency Framework to get the most value out of the case studies. It will link a key MSD competency (A2 - Business and financial analysis) to targeted resources (the ILO report) and a methodology (case study) to strengthen capacity.
