The way forward after the revolution - decent work for women in Egypt and Tunisia - Final evaluation

Good Practice Description

The 'Way Forward' has shown the utility of engaging civil society organizations (NGOs and CSOs) under implementation agreements, bringing added value and assets, as well as sustainability elements, unforeseen in the original project design. The dual objective of (1) raising awareness of rights at work and (2) building technical skills and enterprise-management capacity largely has been met at mid-term by partnering with local CSOs applying ILO tools and local knowledge.

An aspect of project relevance was the important engagement with local authorities in Egypt. The development of cooperatives, local industries, accessing land and infrastructure for job creation often require the cooperation of local authorities, where they exist.
