Many countries have put in place stimulus packages and related measures since the crisis began, many of which are recommended in the Global Jobs Pact.
The ILO has been responding to requests for technical assistance from member states in their crisis response and recovery policies and programmes. This support has been organized around specific crisis-related policy measures as prioritized in the Decent Work Country Programmes. It has involved all the areas of the decent work agenda: employment, social protection, international labour standards, social dialogue and gender analysis.
The Global Jobs Pact Country Scan document provides a description of the impact of the crisis in the country, and a detailed description of the policy responses using the Pact portfolio as a checklist. It looks at the country situation and policy responses “through the lens” of the Pact.
Each country will need to develop its own national tripartite process, while maintaining the principles that underpin the Global Jobs Pact.
Read here the country scans as they become available.
