Through 25 chapters authored by some of the leading researchers in the field, the Human Resources Development Review 2008 provides an extensive overview of the contextual factors driving human resources development in South Africa. A key theme throughout the volume is the importance of a multi-faceted skills development strategy operating at three levels. The first entails high-skills policies aimed at expanding export-oriented manufacturing production and services provision, particularly in new globally competitive 'niche' areas. The second relates to the economy's ongoing need for intermediate skills, as is evident in the shortage of skilled artisans and technologists. Finally, the provision of basic, entry-level skills is important in view of the urgent need for large-scale job creation schemes, triggered by public sector initiatives, to ameliorate high levels of unemployment and despondency, especially amongst the youth.
