Organizational Setting

This position is located in the Programming unit in the ILO Country Office for Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique (ILO CO- Lusaka). ILO CO-Lusaka `s provides technical and advisory services to Government, Workers’ and Employers’ organisations as the Tripartite Constituents of the ILO.

The goal of the ILO is decent work for women and men throughout the world. Decent work is central to global efforts to reducing poverty and is a means for achieving equitable, inclusive and sustainable development. Decent Work Country Programmes (DWCPs) are the main instruments through which the ILO member states, together with Workers’ and Employers’ organisations (Constituents) coordinate and effectively implement various technical cooperation programmes aimed at achieving Decent Work for All.  Developed in partnership with ILO constituents at country level and aligned to national development frameworks, DWCPs aim to tackle major decent work deficits through a limited number of integrated and mutually reinforcing strategic objectives of decent work.

While the promotion of decent work is the primary mandate of the ILO, the United Nations system as a whole has a role to play in promoting full and productive employment and decent work for all.  Therefore, the ILO works in close collaboration with other UN agencies to make Decent Work a reality for all working women and men and contribute effectively towards national development, poverty reduction and inclusive growth
