Decent Work Country Programmes are the operational framework for ILO activities in a given country. They constitute a programming tool to deliver on a limited number of priorities over a defined period within a more visible and transparent strategy, to maximize the impact of the ILO's work.
DWT/CO-Budapest developed the first generation of Decent Work Country Programmes between 2006-2007 for Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Moldova, Romania and Ukraine.
The second cycle of Decent Work Country Programmes was implemented in the period 2008-2011 in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Moldova, Serbia and Ukraine.
A new framework of cooperation entitled Decent Work Country Agendas were developed for Bulgaria and Romania between 2008 and 2009 and for Croatia between 2010 and 2011. From 2012 the third series of Decent Work Country Programmes will be developed
for Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Moldova and Ukraine.
