Abstract Whilst the informal sector is a major provider of skills for the bulk of Pakistan's labour force, its crucial role has largely been overlooked in policy making. There is a need to undertake effective interventions in the informal training system to enhance the quality of skills and incomes of its participants, and thereby improve the employment prospects of a majority of the country's labour force.
