Kuwait’s voluntary contributions to the ILO aim to support decent work in the OPT, with a particular focus on three main priorities:
- enhancing employment and livelihood opportunities for Palestinian women and men;
- strengthening labour governance, collective bargaining and improved social dialogue mechanisms; and
- supporting the implementation and development of the Palestinian social security system and the extension of social protection to all.
Thanks to Kuwait’s contributions, the ILO has been able to support the partnership between the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) and the Palestine Economic Policy Research Institute to enhance their capacities to produce statistical data, forecasts and analysis needed for better planning and policy development in the field of employment and labour. This partnership resulted in two supplements to the Economic Monitor report available here
