The poor do not have the resources to pay for their own training. The experience of nearly twenty years of structural adjustment has conclusively demonstrated that merely 'getting prices' and creating the appropriate enabling environment' for farmers and microenterprises is not sufficient in order to ensure a strong 'supply response'. Public resources are urgently needed, therefore, to tackle the most serious constraints that are preventing high and sustained economic growth among the poor.
As discussed earlier, apart from poor, marginal farmers, the provision of formalised training inputs is not generally regarded as a top priority. In the competition for donor resources, NGOs have successfully made the case for microcredit as the most critical input that can immediately improve the livelihoods of the poor, and particularly women. There are those who have serious reservations with this argument, but for the time being at least, the current fashion for financial services is likely to continue.

As the world's only tripartite multilateral agency, the ILO is dedicated to bringing decent work and livelihoods, job-related security and better living standards to the people of both poor and rich countries. It helps to attain those goals by promoting rights at work, encouraging opportunities for decent employment, enhancing social protection and strengthening dialogue on work-related issues. The ILO is the international meeting place for the world of work. We are the experts on work and employment and particularly on the critical role that these issues play in bringing about economic development and progress. At the heart of our mission is helping countries build the institutions that are the bulwarks of democracy and to help them become accountable to the people. The ILO formulates international labour standards in the form of Conventions and Recommendations setting minimum standards of basic labour rights: freedom of association, the right to organize, collective bargaining, abolition of forced labour, equality of opportunity and treatment and other standards addressing conditions across the entire spectrum of work-related issues.
