Upgrading technical skills in small construction enterprises

Upgrading managerial skills in small construction enterprises
This strategy features in the framework of Agenda 21 as formulated at UNCED (Rio de Janeiro, 1992), now coordinated by the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development and implemented through national and local authorities.

Agenda 21 recommends that developing countries should be assisted by international support and funding agencies in upgrading the technical and managerial capacities of small entrepreneurs and the vocational skills of operatives and supervisors in the building materials industry, using a variety of training methods. These countries should also be assisted in developing programmes to encourage the use of non-waste and clean technologies through appropriate transfer of technology.
