Thematic areas in Employment intensive investment

Areas of work

EIIP is implemented through global, regional, national and local programmes, funded by governments and development partners, and include sectoral, national or local infrastructure programmes, public work programmes and public employment programmes. Over the years, EIIP has developed a comprehensive package of product lines, covering the following six thematic areas:

  1. Employment Impact Assessment (EmpIA)

    Analysing the employment impact of public infrastructure investments

  2. Public Employment Programmes (PEPs)

    Creating decent jobs through national investments and employment guarantee schemes.

  3. Public and Private Sector Development

    Small-scale contractor development in the construction sector for employment-intensive infrastructure investments

  4. Green Works

    Promoting forest restoration, irrigation, soil and water conservation, and flood protection as core elements of recovery and reconstruction

  5. Community and LRB Approaches

    Addressing local needs through local resource-based approaches

  6. Emergency Employment

    Providing immediate income, decent jobs and improved assets in fragile, conflict and disaster situations.

  7. Cross cutting areas

    Crosscutting areas are the ILO’s core values that cut across all EIIP thematic areas, and strengthen the unique approach that it has developed over the past half century.
