Netherlands-ILO Cooperation

The Netherlands signed a Partnership Programme with the ILO for 2014-2017. In the framework of the Partnership programme, the Netherlands provides USD 3.3 million per year as an un-earmarked contribution that allows the ILO to respond flexibly to the demands of developing countries for ILO assistance and USD 3.3 million per year to the Better Work Programme, which works to improve working conditions and productivity in the garment sector worldwide. The Netherlands also strongly supports the ILO outside this partnership by providing an average of USD 5 million per year of additional voluntary contribution in the period 2014-2016.
