Combined Evaluation of ILO/IPEC garment sector projects as part of the “Memorandum of Understanding” framework with the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association- Final Project Evaluation (2004)

This study is both a final evaluation of each of these three projects and a programme evaluation of the whole ILO/IPEC BGMEA intervention.

In July 1995 BGMEA, UNICEF and ILO signed a Memorandum of Understanding in order to work together to remove and rehabilitate child workers in the garment industry. A second MOU was signed in July 2000 and ILO/IPEC implemented 3 projects that contributed to the fulfilment of the MOU’s objectives. The USDOL funded BGMEA Phase III, the ISPI funded and the NORAD funded extended components.
The purpose is to document the process and the achievements. The evaluation was carried out by 2 independent consultants during September and October 2003.
