Eight out of ten of the world’s working poor live in rural areas where the lack of decent work opportunities is pervasive.
Common constraints to unleashing the potential of rural economies include: a lack of decent jobs and reliable incomes; low productivity; informality; weak enforcement of the rule of law; ineffective organization and participation of rural people in decision-making; under-investment in agriculture, non-farm employment and infrastructure in rural areas; and limited or non-existent access to social protection and services. The Centre’s training activities aim to better equip ILO constituents and other ILO stakeholders to promote decent work in order to support sustainable rural livelihoods, with a focus on protecting and empowering vulnerable people. A particular emphasis is placed on the promotion of local development approaches that connect public and private stakeholders and their resources in the search for better employment and a higher quality of life for both men and women.
