Report of Transition to the formal economy: A Global knowledge sharing forum - GKSF

As a follow-up to the adoption of R204, the ILO organized a Global Knowledge Sharing Forum on Transition to Formal Economy from the 23rd-27th of November at the International Training Centre of the ILO (Turin Centre) . The Forum, held in English and Spanish, built on the conclusions from regional knowledge sharing workshops organised by the ILO in Africa, Asia, and Europe and in Latin America and the Caribbean in 2015, focused on the exchange of promising practices worldwide as well as discussions on effective implementation of Recommendation 204. The Forum was an opportunity to take stock of the wealth of knowledge across participating regions and to reflect upon how to further promote formality through innovative policies, in particular integrated frameworks, that can be efficiently monitored and evaluated for higher impact.
