MetadataShow full item record
This Discussion paper is part of ZIPAR’s Flagship project on “More and Better Jobs”. The Flagship Project was launched on 25th June 2015 and is running for 18 months. The project will develop an understanding of Zambia’s jobs challenge and policy options for how to respond. It aims at addressing both the underlying long-term challenge of how to create more and better jobs and also the short-term challenge of protecting jobs during the current economic slowdown. The project is being informed by an Advisory Group, which includes representatives of the private sector, government, civil society, academia and international organisations. Special thanks to IPSOS who were instrumental in conducting the public opinion poll and business survey on whose data this Discussion Paper is based. Special thanks to Will Paxton and Guy Lodge for their contribution in putting this paper together. ZIPAR would also like to thank the businesses that took part in this survey and individuals who gave us an overwhelming response during the opinion poll. This Discussion Paper, however, does not represent the views of a single business or individual but is aimed at painting a picture of the general attitude of the public on their perceptions and experiences during the economic slowdown with respect to the labour market.
