Port of Spain: ILO News - As an immediate follow-up to the launch of the 2nd generation Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP) for The Bahamas: 2021-20261 on 6 December 2021, the ILO, in collaboration with the National Tripartite Council (NTC), will convene an intensive induction Results-based Management (RBM) and Work-planning exercise on 7-11 March 2022. 

Based on the principles of social dialogue, engagement and cooperation among national stakeholders, key tripartite representatives from The Bahamas will come together during these five days to focus on both the theoretical and the practical application of RBM. These sessions will provide participants with the opportunity to strengthen their capacity to effectively manage and monitor the implementation of the DWCP to the national development goals to achieve real and meaningful change. The ILO Decent Work Team (ILO DWT), led by Mr Dennis Zulu, Director, and Mr Lars Johansen, Deputy Director, will provide specialized advisory support in the development of a roadmap on the priority areas that are outlined in the DWCP 2021-2026.

The five-year DWCP was developed through a series of consultations with tripartite constituents and other key stakeholders led by the National Tripartite Council (NTC) and in collaboration with the ILO DWT/O-POS. The DWCP serves as a framework and outlines the goals and objectives of the Bahamian Social Partners in ensuring that Decent Work remains aligned with the national development in The Bahamas. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with its commitment to the human rights agenda and the core programming principle to leave no one behind, is central to The Bahamas DWCP, 2021-2026. The priorities of the DWCP are based on The Bahamas’ national development priorities, as articulated in Vision 2040

At the end of the training, a formal ceremony will take place to announce the members of the DWCP Steering Committee which will comprise the Executive Committee of the National Tripartite Council (NTC) of The Bahamas, representatives of the ILO DWT, and selected representatives from the NTC’s wider membership.

The media are invited to attend the ceremony, carded for the 11 March 2022, 1.00 pm at the Margaritaville Beach Resort, The Bahamas, to meet with The Bahamas DWCP Steering Committee members.

1. Decent Work Country Programmes are the main vehicle for delivery of ILO support to countries. They have two main objectives: first, to promote decent work and its normative framework as a key component of national development strategies; second, to organize ILO knowledge, instruments, advocacy and cooperation at the service of tripartite constituents in a results-based framework to advance the decent work agenda
