Portfolio of Policy Guidance Notes on the Promotion of Decent Work in the Rural Economy

Promoting Decent Work for Rural Workers at the Base of the Supply Chain

Supply chains influence the structure of labour markets and transform production, trade and employment. They are important in the rural economy for economic development and the promotion of decent work, particularly as rural workers are often found at the base of the chain. The International Labour Organization (ILO) plays an active role in working towards a situation in which rural workers can achieve effective and beneficial participation in supply chains, facilitating both economic and social upgrading while ensuring good governance and the respect of fundamental rights.
