Last trainings organized on the transition from informal to formal economy by ILO and ITCILO had a very positive impact on their target groups, both in terms of learning objectives and practical outcomes. The extensive use of interactive tools was a determinant of these activities’ success!

Given the carrying capacity of web-based learning platforms as well as their effectiveness in amplifying the effect of face to face activities and supporting knowledge and experience sharing among stakeholders located in different countries, this Community of Practices jointly supported by ILO and ITCILO could play a crucial role in fostering an awareness-raising and advocacy campaign on R204!
