  Background:

Technical Advisor for Business Development Services (BDS)

Context
Employment-oriented private sector development is an important factor contributing to a peaceful society. Yet, the economy in the capitals of North and West Darfur is subsistence-based and underdeveloped. Young people often take up unqualified jobs without any prospect of long-term employment and personal development. Their income is below the minimum for self-sustenance. Business start-up could be a possible way forward. However, there is a lack of employment opportunities, businesses don’t have the capacities and resources to create jobs and workers don’t possess the skills to feed the needs of the labour market.
The project brings more qualified people in Darfur into sustainable employment. Demand-oriented vocational and entrepreneurship training conveys hands-on skills and know-how to young people on how to start a business. Small and micro enterprises are enabled to expand. Business development services support selected enterprises to compete on the local market, to increase their revenue and, ultimately, to offer new employment.
The technical advisor for BDS supports the area of intervention “Private sector development and employment promotion”. He/She is responsible for the implementation of activities that improve the provision of business development services by meso-organisations such as unions for small and micro enterprises. The activities will be implemented in the urban areas of the capitals of North and West Darfur only.
