  1. Informality and Poverty in Zambia: Findings from the 2015 Living Conditions and Monitoring Survey

    31 May 2019

    In Zambia like in many developing countries, quality and up-to-date data on the size and characteristics of informal workers are scarce, which constitutes a major challenge to the formulation of appropriate policies targeting this group, and the extension of social protection coverage in general. Despite its importance to employment and contribution to the economy, the definition and measurement of the informal economy pose a challenge. The analysis on informality and poverty in Zambia presents useful and critical information to support comprehensive policy dialogue on suitable interventions for extension of coverage.

    15 May 2019

    The ILO is launching an appeal to its development partners to support the response to Cyclone Idai and Kenneth in Mozambique. The intervention aims to contribute to the restoration of public services using resilient construction methods while generating short-term employment for young workers in Sofala and Manica, which have been the most affected provinces. This response is part of the ILO overall strategy for the implementation of the Recommendation No. 205 on Employment and Decent Work for peace and resilience (2017), where disaster response and disaster risk reduction have been indicated as a priority in crisis response by ILO constituents. The estimated funding need is USD 13 million, spread across the 2019-2021 period.
