Multi-dimensional Review of Paraguay

Volume 2. In-depth Analysis and Recommendations

image of Multi-dimensional Review of Paraguay

Having achieved robust economic growth and remarkable macroeconomic stability over the past 15 years, Paraguay has set a course to become not only more prosperous, but also more inclusive by 2030. To deliver on its development ambition, the country will have to overcome a number of crosscutting constraints that limit progress towards widely shared improvements in citizen well-being, as identified in Volume 1 of the review. Putting Paraguay on a more inclusive development path requires co-ordinated actions to increase the capacity of the state to redistribute, to improve the delivery of public services, and to break the persistence of poverty and inequality across generations. This report discusses policy actions and priorities in three critical areas to make Paraguay’s development more inclusive. It presents in-depth analysis and recommendations to improve the effectiveness of social protection, the delivery of health services, and the formation of skills for all Paraguayans.

Towards an education and skills system that fosters inclusiveness and employability in Paraguay

OECD Development Centre

Paraguay has made substantial progress in various dimensions of its education system in recent years as highlighted in Volume I of the Multidimensional Review of Paraguay. However, major challenges remain and reforms are unfinished. Access to the education system has expanded markedly, but is still a challenge in pre-primary and secondary education and for some socioeconomic groups. Schooling has improved, but learning outcomes are poor. And the relevance of the education and skills provided by the system is questionable, as illustrated by the problematic transition from school to work, with many young people leaving the education system too early to enter inactivity or informality. This chapter analyses these challenges in depth, and provides recommendations to improve the education and skills system in Paraguay in order to foster inclusiveness and employability.
