Policy database on Employment and decent work in rural areas

The Policy database on Employment and decent work in rural areas is an online inventory of current national, regional and global policies, programmes and studies that are relevant to the promotion of more and better jobs in the rural areas of developing countries. The Database has the twofold purpose of:

  • Facilitating a quick assessment of countries and regions’ needs for support on Employment and decent work in rural areas, and
  • Fostering information sharing on how the employment challenge in rural areas is addressed around the world.

This database represents the first initiative that focuses primarily on employment-related issues applied to rural areas and/or the agricultural sector.
