This report is presented in collaboration with the ILO's Jobs and Skills Programme for Africa (JASPA). It consists essentially of the Executive Summary of the ILO/JASPA African Employment Report 1992. The report discusses four major themes which have a considerable bearing on the critical employment situation in Africa; an overview of recent economic performance and its impact on employment; a critical assessment of the retrenchment and redeployment programmes in the public sector which have become salient features of structural adjustment programmes in African countries; an evaluation of the impact of the ongoing economic policy reforms on the urban informal sector employment, and manpower and employment planning approaches under economic reforms.
