Regional Training and Knowledge-Sharing Workshop on Measuring and Monitoring Progress on Decent Work (Kiev, Ukraine - 27-28 September 2012)

Monitoring and assessing progress (MAP) towards decent work at the country-level is a long-standing concern for the ILO and its constituents. Against this background, the ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization (2008) 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. The Regional Workshop was organized as one of the key regional activities under the MAP project. The meeting involved 40 participants, including government officials from ministries of labour and national statistical offices of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Macedonia (FYR), Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, Serbia, Russian Federation and Ukraine. In addition, workers’ and employers’ representatives from Ukraine also participated, as well as leading Ukrainian researchers in the area of labour market development and trends.
