National Training and Knowledge-Sharing Workshop on Measuring and Monitoring Progress on Decent Work in Ukraine

The National Workshop on Monitoring and Assessing Progress on Decent Work in Ukraine took place in Lviv from 24 to 25 September 2012. The Workshop made strong reference to the ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization (2008), which recommends the establishment of appropriate indicators or statistics, if necessary with assistance from the ILO, to monitor the progress made in the implementation of the ILO Decent Work Agenda . It is with this in mind that the ILO and the European Commission launched a joint project on the Monitoring and assessing progress on decent work (MAP). The project, which runs for a four-year period (2009-2013), covers various countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Central and Eastern Europe. It works with Government agencies, Employers’ and Workers’ organizations and research institutions to strengthen the national capacity to monitor and assess progress towards decent work. It has an important component geared towards enhancing national capacities in the production and analysis of decent work indicators.
