Resources on youth employment

  1. Engaging multinational enterprises on job creation for young women and men in Cote d’Ivoire

    17 December 2014

    As the economy of Côte d’Ivoire slowly recovers after a long period of crisis, building a bright future for the young generation is crucial. The increasing number of multinational enterprises (MNEs) operating in the country are a promising yet largely untapped source for local job creation. Until now, jobs have been mainly filled by foreigners due to limited skilled labour available locally. The ILO provides assistance to the government, employers and workers organizations to address the situation by engaging MNEs on this national priority.

  5. Advancing Decent Work for Domestic Workers

    06 September 2010

    TECHNICAL COOPERATION PROJECT. The work of caring and cleaning in the employer’s home for pay, one of the most important occupations for millions of women around the world, is precarious, low-paid, and unprotected, as it is often excluded totally or in part from the scope of labour law. If decent work is to become a reality for these workers, national laws and enforcement mechanisms must identify and address the specific characteristics of domestic work. In 2011, the ILO is expected to adopt new, specific international labour standards on domestic work.
