Decent Work in Agriculture
Activities were carried out at the national, enterprise and/or local community level, depending on the interest of constituents. National level activities emphasized improvements in the legal, regulatory or policy framework governing safety and health in agricultural workplaces. Enterprise-level activities comprised the delivery of large-scale training programmes for safety managers and workers’ safety representatives from a large number of agricultural enterprises. Community-level activities involved the adaptation of the WIND methodology (Work Improvements in Neighbourhood Development) to local conditions and spreading knowledge of basic safe work practices to rural communities.
Nine countries participated in the Action Programme. The participating countries at national level are Barbados, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Uganda; enterprise training activities were conducted in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras and Local community (WIND) activities were conducted in Ethiopia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova and Senegal.
