Lab “Future of Work” in Ethiopia

How does the future of work look like in Ethiopia with regard to the trends of rising globalization and digitalisation, and how can we make sure that everybody can benefit of these trends and that nobody is left behind?

Similar to the Alumniportal Labs that took place in Egypt and India earlier this year related to this topic, there was also a big need and interest of exchange and of elaborating joint ideas at the Lab “Future of Work” in Ethiopia and of how to implement them. Around 50 selected Germany-Alumni and other stakeholders from politics, economy, civil society and other German organisations took this opportunity and accepted the invitation from the Alumniportal Deutschland to the Lab at the Goethe-Institut in Addis Ababa on 20 September 2018. Local experts gave their inputs on different topics related to the “Future of Work”, in a next step participants elaborated statements by using innovative facilitation methods (e.g. Lego Serious Play, Journaling, Kuumba, etc.) on how inclusive and decent work for all in Ethiopia can be achieved until 2030.

Learn more about the Alumniportal Lab in Ethiopia in the report. You will find the presentations in the community group “Alumniportal Labs – Future of Work”.

I will just add on to Jack Otieno's observation. All kinds of Businesses, are rapidly getting digitised, or automated and the era of Hard copy, filing, of records etc is coming to an end. Any thing and everything is on-line soft copy or in whats up or facebook etc.
If we are talking about INCLUSIVE development and jobs for all., we need to put our efforts in empowering the thousands of people who will be left over because of knowledge gap and skill gap. It may not be specific to Kenya or India but whereever diditisation is happening. We need to go on war footing on skill building and up scaling of all those who may be disadvantaged. Traini9ng, Re- Training and of course supporting them till they become self sustaining.
In other part of the portal I was reading about Min. salary for evry one. This may be a very costly adventure. This would be a noble move if we can think of a min. salary for those who become jobless due to automation/digitisation. Those who are still competitive need to be skilled in IOT, AI and ofc ourse Data Analytics which seems to be the most wanted skills to survive in this game.

I think am placed for this activity not only as UN EBAFOSA Kenya actor in the ecosystem environment but also as a candid candidate within the Information Communication and Technology segment.Much though require partnership exchange across state and nonstate actors within the specialization model globally.In view of the same, Kenya agricultural segment has gained fundamental boost with UN collaborative efforts for sustainable food chain along different actors.Creating market availability while mitigating climate change through advanced technology and expertise.
