  6. Institutional and Needs Assessment of Cooperatives and Cooperative Support Organisations in the Tobacco Growing Communities in Kaoma and Nkeyema Districts Sector, Zambia

    24 September 2019

    The ILO is implementing a project “Addressing decent work deficits in the tobacco sector of Zambia”. The proposed one year project will be implemented in Kaoma and Nkeyema Districts of Western Province and will coordinate with and complement similar initiatives in Tanzania, Malawi and in Uganda, which are also working in similar projects. Building on previous ILO’s interventions, the projects will strengthen the capacities of selected farmers’ organizations to address decent work deficits including through the cooperative approach and using ILO adapted tools. Operating in most of the economic sectors where child labour and other decent work deficits are found, particularly in agriculture, cooperatives’ commitment to social responsibility can lend them naturally to play an important role to eliminate child labour and promote decent working conditions. The ILO has long drawn on the strength of the cooperative model in the fight against child labour and other decent work deficits. In this regard, the ILO is calling for proposals for consultancy services to undertake an Institutional and Needs Assessment of Cooperatives and Cooperative Support Organisations in the Tobacco Growing Communities in Kaoma and Nkeyema Districts.
