Improving compliance with key International Labour Standards in Ukraine

The project assists the government, the social partners and the judiciary to respect and apply the fundamental principles and rights at work when developing and implementing new labour legislation.

The ILO joined forces with other UN agencies (UNDP, UN Women, UNICEF and WHO) to build a Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Financing Ecosystem in Bosnia and Herzegovina under the Joint SDG Fund. An SDG Financing ecosystem is a network that enables the generation of additional funding to promote and achieve the SDGs.

Bosnia and Herzegovina has a complex political governance system.  The fragmentation of policy processes makes the achievement of the SDGs more challenging than in other countries in the Western Balkans. The 2-year joint programme between the five different UN agencies aims to develop finance assessments and expenditure reviews, foster social dialogue and support the governments at national and sub-national levels through capacity building. These interventions shall help to establish SDG-informed resource planning of public spending and assess the efficiency of past spending. By doing so, an SDG financing ecosystem will strengthen and additional finances catalyze towards the achievement of the SDGs.

The ILO contribution to this joint programme focuses on bringing additional resources to SDG 8 “Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all”.
