    This report has been prepared by the International Labour Office pursuant to an agreement between the ILO and the World Bank to carry out third-party monitoring of the World Bank-financed projects in agriculture, water and education sectors in Uzbekistan. Third party monitoring was undertaken and reported on also in 2015 and 2016. The ILO is grateful for the cooperation of the tripartite constituents of Uzbekistan in the monitoring and assessment process. The ILO has tried to reflect the constructive comments and input received from national governmental and non-governmental organizations, including civil society representatives, throughout the process. In line with the request of its partners in Uzbekistan the report contains a number of concrete suggestions for further opportunities, including cooperation involving the ILO and the World Bank. The ILO alone is responsible for the conclusions in this report.
