Decent civil works in Nepal and Thailand: From research to action planning

Focuses on labour policy and practice relating to decent work in the Nepalese and Thai construction sectors.

This publication consolidates the results of sister studies undertaken in Nepal and Thailand. The construction industries in these countries are large both in terms of the employment engaged in the sector and the importance of the sector in the national economy. Considering this, the resources available for the studies permit only an impressionistic rendering of decent work in the sector. The studies nevertheless relied on a formal data collection methodology involving structured interviews with relevant stakeholders.
