Decent Work on Plantations - Brochure

Plantations play a critical role in many developing and emerging economies with
large rural sectors. They create, directly and indirectly, employment opportunities
for millions of people and generate important export earnings. Having strong
linkages with other economic sectors, they form an important connection with
global supply chains and contribute to economic growth and development.
Not only do plantations constitute a source of livelihood, but workers and their
families often live on plantations and rely on them for basic services, including
health care and education.
