From Obligation to Opportunity
Scrutinizing the garment and textiles value chains to foster better working conditions in Vietnam and Indonesia
Short DescriptionThe Lab carried out an analysis of the garment supply chain in Asia to understand the dynamics of value addition and the market incentives to provide better working conditions. This report, along with two complementary reports on industrial relations and environmental sustainability (see here under 'Meeting documents'), is part of the scoping phase for a regional project on “Decent Work in the Garment Sector Supply Chains in Asia”, funded by the Regional Development Cooperation Section at the Embassy of Sweden in Thailand. The programme seeks to address improvements in decent work, environmental sustainability, and gender equality in the garment sector in Asia.
