    15 May 2019

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.
