Senegal to implement new Country Programme for Decent Work
The Senegalese Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Employment jointly signed with the International Labour Office and social partners (employers and workers' organizations) on December 11, the new Country Programme for Decent Work (PPTD) aligned with the Plan Sénégal Emergent.
The second generation PPTD Senegal 2018-2022 follows the first PPTD 2012-2016, whose results, despite significant progress, have been mixed, particularly due to low resource mobilization.
With a provisional budget of 867,267,800 CFA francs, this new PPTD aims to achieve two main priorities: promoting the creation of decent jobs for men and women; and, strengthening and extending social protection.
The PPTD is the result-based strategic framework around which the government and social partners commit to work in partnership with the International Labour Organization (ILO) and other key partners to achieve decent work objectives, Journal du Cameroun noted.
It has been technically validated since December 4, 2017 and approved by the ILO Office in Geneva.
