DWCPs are developed with full participation of national governments and employers’ and workers’ organizations and are implemented with their active engagement. They constitute the ILO’s contribution to the wider UN effort in a country and provide vehicle for steering the Office’s collaboration within the UN system and with other partners at the country level.
Managing for results in Development Cooperation
Country ownership and results orientation are key aspects of ILO's Development Cooperation. Through their results frameworks, ILO programmes support country priorities identified in DWCPs. ILO's programming approach promotes synergies and seeks complementarity of operations, bringing together diverse sources of funding for the achievement of common outcomes, greater scale and impact.
The ILO manual on Development Cooperation (2015) provides staff with guidance, rules and regulations on results-based management of DC projects and programmes. It covers each step of ILO's project cycle management.
