Leaflet - Promotion of decent work in cotton-producing countries in Africa and Latin America

Information leaflet about the project for "Promotion of decent work in cotton-producing countries in Africa and Latin America", part of a trilateral south-south cooperation arrangement between the Brazilian Government, the partner countries and the ILO Office in Brasil.

The project aims to promote decent work in cotton-producing countries through the systematization, sharing and adaptation, by interested countries, of relevant Brazilian experiences in areas such as fighting poverty, productive inclusion, prevention and eradication of child labour and forced labour, formalization of work, promotion of youth employment, combating discrimination, and promoting gender, race and ethnicity equality, and social dialogue.

Taking into account the principles of South-South cooperation and the mechanisms adopted by the Brazilian government for trilateral South-South technical cooperation, technical inputs to capacity development in partner countries will be provided by cooperating Brazilian institutions. To that effect, such institutions shall rely on ILO technical support, in line with their mandates and based on their body of knowledge and institutional specialties, with emphasis on the role of supporting the identification and systematization of technical content object of the cooperation, as well as the development of methodologies and tools to enable the transfer and adaptation between Brazil and other partner developing country.
