Support to the Yemeni Ministry of Social Affairs and Labour in Labour Market Information and Employment Policy: Public-Private Partnership

In 2006, the ILO and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) helped Yemen formulate a Labour Market Information System and Human Resource Development Strategy. Based on this framework, a project was launched to enhance Yemen’s capacity in statistical research, labour market monitoring, and policy-oriented analysis, laying the groundwork for making timely and reliable labour market information generally available.

Benefits of Partnering

  • Access to cross-sectoral knowledge on child labour issues from other companies with experience in dealing with similar challenges;
  • 20 years of experience in technical expertise, field work, and policy advice from the ILO International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour, including a members-only website as a repository of publications, communities of practice, and an events board;
  • Regular updates on changes to child labour legislation, including hazardous work lists sets at the country level;
  • Enhanced linkages with national tripartite structures and processes to eliminate child labour. Resultantly, efforts are better linked to nationally-owned policies and programmes; and as a corollary, the sustainability of such efforts is increased;
