GlobalDF creates new tool to maximize African jobs resulting from infrastructure

Given the urgent need for job creation in Africa, GlobalDF was engaged by GIZ to create the PIDA Job Creation Toolkit to optimize job creation resulting from infrastruc­ture projects for the African Union Development Agency NEPAD (AUDA NEPAD) with the support of GIZ. The objective of the Toolkit is to increase the capacity of African governments, development partners, and the private sector to maximize the number and quality of African jobs in their design of African infrastructure projects. For AUDA NEPAD’s outlook on potential jobs created through African infrastructure based on their use of the Toolkit, click here.


Based on best practices using input-output tables, the PIDA Job Creation Toolkit methodology estimates di­rect, indirect and induced labor market effects during the planning, construction, and operation & maintenance phases of infrastructure projects. In addition, the methodology esti­mates secondary job effects, which are those jobs that are being created in other sectors of the economy due to the operational infrastructure service provided (e.g., improved energy access, improved transport, etc.).

Actionable effective collaboration is urgently required to design and implement finance solutions to achieve the SDGs and Climate Goals!
