The director general of the International Labour Organisation, Guy Ryder (second from the left), signed the memorandum of understanding for Namibia’s Second Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP) with government and social partners today.
DWCPs have been established as the main vehicle for delivery of ILO support to countries and have two basic objectives. They promote decent work as a key component of national development strategies. At the same time they organise ILO knowledge, instruments, advocacy and cooperation at the service of tripartite constituents in a results-based framework to advance the Decent Work Agenda within the fields of comparative advantage of the organisation. Tripartism and social dialogue are central to the planning and implementation of a coherent and integrated ILO programme of assistance to constituents in member states.
