NWPC attends ILO USDOL project on improving workers’ rights in the rural sectors
NWPC attended the launching of ILOUSDOL project on “Improving workers’ rights in the Rural Sectors of the Indo Pacific with a Focus on Women” on 11 August 2021 via Zoom.
The project aims to promote and strengthen compliance on international labour standards and labor laws, occupational safety and health(OSH), and gender equality in rural sectors in the Philippines and Indonesia with focus on rural workers and women. It is part of the ILO’s Safety + Health for All Flagship Programme to promote and improve safety and health globally among the vulnerable.
The project supports a human-centred recovery from COVID-19 in line with the global call to action to promote decent work, safer, and healthier workplaces, and equal opportunities in rural sectors of agriculture, fishing and mining, with women as focus.
This project also contributes to the Decent Work Country Programme of the Philippines, the Socioeconomic and Peacebuilding Framework by the UN, and the National Employment Recovery Strategy(NERS) by the Philippine government developed through social dialogue with workers, employers and partners.
