Overview of current projects

The ILO operates a wide range of programmes and projects in Central and Eastern Europe focusing on international labour standards, job creation, social security, social dialogue and equality and discrimination at work. The overall purpose of this technical cooperation is to support implementation of the Decent Work agenda in each country.

  1. Inclusive and productive employment in the Republic of Moldova

    1 December 2022 - 31 December 2024

    The project includes a complementary package of interventions on creation of more and better jobs, improved employability of people through Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and adult learning, and formalization of employment.

  2. Inclusive labour markets for job creation in Ukraine

    1 December 2017 - 30 June 2024

    Considering the complexity of the Ukrainian labour market, the Denmark-funded ILO program implements a comprehensive approach, organized around three key pillars. This initiative concentrates on upgrading the Ukrainian public employment services, empowering them to offer more efficient and inclusive active labour market policies. The program includes a substantial skills development facet, dedicated to diminishing the skills gap. This is achieved by aligning the qualifications of new labour market entrants more closely with private sector needs. Finally, the program dedicates itself to strengthening social dialogue mechanisms, targeting vital issues such as informal employment, wage inequality, and gender discrimination.

The project will also aim at training compliance officers in these industries, with a goal of increased awareness of and reliance on grievance mechanisms.
