Projects and services on global supply chains

Several ILO Development Cooperation projects and programmes address decent work specifically in the context of global supply chains and are highlighted on this page. Many other ILO activities, such as work to strengthen labour inspectorates, support for cross-border social dialogue, thematic membership-based platforms and networks, capacity building, research, and other technical assistance help to strengthen the enabling environment for decent work in global supply chains. Additional information can be found on the ILO’s Development Cooperation Dashboard.
