What is the lab?

The lab was a research and knowledge generation project on how to measure and maximise labour market outcomes while working in value chains and sectors. The project was implemented by the ILO with funding from Swiss SECO.
The project’s first phase started in 2014 until 2017 and the second phase followed right after and ended at the close of 2020. The Systems Change Initiative builds on the work and achievements of the Lab in helping advance the application of the systems approach to promote Decent Work.
