As one of in total six projects being implemented under the Millennium Challenge Compact the TVET project addressed the primary constraints to economic growth in Mongolia. By establishing a new institutional framework supporting a demand-driven TVET system, it focused on greater labor productivity and the strengthening of training systems to meet the labor market demand in Mongolia’s key industries.The overarching goal of the MCA-M TVET Project was to increase employment and income among unemployed or marginally-employed Mongolians, and thus to contribute to poverty reduction in Mongolia. Securing private-sector participation, creating skills standards, establishing a competency-based training system and introducing a new career guidance system were the TVET project’s main objectives achieved by accomplishing five inter-related project components.Web site: http://www.mcc.gov/pages/countries/evaluation/mongolia-compact
