Tripartism and social dialogue
Resilient, Inclusive and Sustainable Supply Chains Asia (RISSC)
Funded by the Government of Japan, the RISSC project aims to build more resilient, inclusive and sustainable global supply chains as an entry point and catalyst for advancing decent work, addressing human and labour right risks, and building forward better from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Project at a glanceThe ILO-Japan programme’s “Resilient, Inclusive and Sustainable Supply Chains (RISSC)” project aims to support a human-centred recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic and other global disruptions which have exposed both the importance and fragility of global supply chains.
Within the timeframe of 36 months (September 2022 - August 2025), the RISSC project aims to foster more resilient, inclusive and sustainable supply chains in several key sectors in Asia, by addressing human and labour right risks issues and seizing opportunities to expand decent work.
The project will focus on three sectors in three countries:
- Automotive manufacturing in Thailand
- Electronics manufacturing in Indonesia
- Aquaculture in the Philippines
Project approachGrounded in international labour standards and tripartism, the RISSC project will enhance social dialogue and stakeholders’ capacity to deliver on decent work objectives in global supply chains, whilst also engaging other key supply chain actors.
It will also work with Japanese constituents and multinationals operating in these supply chains, to help them better understand supply chain risks and give effective application to the country’s new National Action Plan (NAP) on Business and Human Rights and upcoming due diligence guidance.
To achieve this, the project will leverage research and analysis, policy advice, tools and guidance to help constituents and supply chain stakeholders drive change in their respective sectors.
Target beneficiariesWorking women and men, as well as employers in selected global supply chains, who will see progress on decent work, together with greater industry sustainability and resilience from project interventions.
- ILO constituents and stakeholders adopt recommendations to address decent work opportunities and challenges in selected global supply chains.
- Constituents and stakeholders prepare proposals for advancing decent work and promoting gender equality in more resilient, inclusive and sustainable supply chains.
- Constituents and stakeholders implement policies and measures to build forward better more resilient, inclusive and sustainable global supply chains.
- Japanese constituents effectively implement the NAP on business and human rights with a better understanding of and tools to address risks in global supply chains.
