Thematic areas in Employment intensive investment
Areas of work
EIIP is implemented through global, regional, national and local programmes, funded by governments and development partners, and include sectoral, national or local infrastructure programmes, public work programmes and public employment programmes. Over the years, EIIP has developed a comprehensive package of product lines, covering the following six thematic areas:
Employment Impact Assessment (EmpIA)
Analysing the employment impact of public infrastructure investments
Public Employment Programmes (PEPs)
Creating decent jobs through national investments and employment guarantee schemes.
Public and Private Sector Development
Small-scale contractor development in the construction sector for employment-intensive infrastructure investments
Promoting forest restoration, irrigation, soil and water conservation, and flood protection as core elements of recovery and reconstruction
Community and LRB Approaches
Addressing local needs through local resource-based approaches
Providing immediate income, decent jobs and improved assets in fragile, conflict and disaster situations.
Cross cutting areas
Crosscutting areas are the ILO’s core values that cut across all EIIP thematic areas, and strengthen the unique approach that it has developed over the past half century.
