Soci-economic development

Brief information note on the TREE project achievements and its implementing methodology

Within the framework of ILO's decent work agenda, the ILO and US Department of Labor entered in 2002 into a Cooperative Agreement regarding implementation of a project to improve the social and economic status of vulnerable groups in Pakistan and the Philippines.

In the Philippines, the project addressed the needs in developing human potential and local economies in the post conflict and poor areas of Mindanao. More specifically, the project enhanced capacities of national and local institutions in planning, designing and implementing skills training and post-training support programmes as part of local economic empowerment efforts and decent work promotion.
