This action seeks to enhance labour governance, inspection and working conditions in Iraq, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

This action seeks to enhance labour governance, inspection and working conditions in Iraq, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  It focuses on strengthening the labour inspection system and improving occupational safety and health (OSH) in line with international labour standards, through policy development and capacity building. The project works closely with social partners to raise their awareness on labour inspection, OSH and fundamental principles and rights at work, so they can better engage in programmes to promote compliance with labour legislations and respond to COVID-19.

 

The overall objective of the action is to contribute to the socio-economic development of the Republic of Iraq through enhancing the application of International Labour Standards, national labour legislation and promoting social dialogue, social justice, and decent work.  It has duration of 24 months.   

 

It has three specific objectives:

 

  1. Labour Inspection System modernized and its effectiveness enhanced in line with the International Labour Standards, particularly the Labour Inspection Conventions.
  2. Occupational safety and Health improved in line with the ILO Conventions No. 155 and 187 and in response to COVID-19.
