Decent Work Country Programmes

Decent Work Country Programmes (DWCP) have been established as the main vehicle for the delivery of ILO support to countries. Each DWCP is organised around a limited number of country programme priorities and outcomes, which often include child labour. The table below highlights the status of the DWCP, whether child labour is included as one of the DWCP’s priority outcomes and if other priority outcomes have a bearing on the fight against child labour. If a DWCP is not available in the table below, please check here for the status.

Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers

A country’s Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) outlines its programme for poverty reduction to allow it to obtain funding from the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank for support. The policy and programmes prescriptions in PRSPs can have a direct and/or indirect impact on the child labour situation in the country. Below is the link to past and the most recent PRSPs for this country in the published language.

United Nations Development Assistance Framework

The United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) is a programme document between a government and the United Nations Country Team (UNCT). It outlines the collective actions and strategies of the United Nations system to the achievement of national development goals. A Common Country Assessment (CCA) document is both a process and a product, which is used by the United Nations and its agencies to analyse the national development situation and identify key development issues. These actions and strategies can include or contribute towards the elimination of child labour. The table below indicates links to the different UNDAF and CCA documents, which show the work of the UNCT and the areas or topics covered by the team.
