    01 February 2017

    This report has been prepared by the ILO at the request of the World Bank for the third party monitoring of the World Bank-financed projects in agriculture, water and education sectors in Uzbekistan. The ILO is grateful for the cooperation of the tripartite constituents of Uzbekistan, and in particular the Federation of Trade Unions of Uzbekistan, in the monitoring and assessment process. The ILO has tried to reflect the constructive comments received from its partners throughout the process. In line with their request, it has formulated concrete suggestions for further work by the constituents, including cooperation involving the ILO and the World Bank. The ILO alone is responsible for the conclusions drawn in this report.
