Employment-Intensive Investment in Rural Infrastructure for Economic Development, Social and Environmental Protection and Inclusive Growth

The Employment-Intensive Investment Programme (EIIP) is one of the ILO’s key means of increasing the impact of investments on employment and promoting an integrated path to inclusive growth. It contributes simultaneously to multiple rural development priorities: improving basic services, developing productive and environmental infrastructure, while providing much needed employment, improving working conditions, stimulating decentralization processes and private sector growth, promoting local economic development, and enhancing rural household income security.
