    Organization: International Labour Organization
    Country: Ethiopia
    Closing date: 28 Feb 2017


    The International Labour Organization, Country Office for Ethiopia, Djibouti, Somalia, Sudan and South Sudan and for the Special Representative to the AU and the ECA is looking for qualified consultants/firms as per the following details.

    Terms of Reference

    The Final Review of the Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP) for Ethiopia (2014-2016) and Formulation of the DWCP 2017-2020

    Context and Justification

    The fundamental aim of the International Labour Organization (ILO) is to promote full employment and ensuring access for every man and woman to decent and productive work in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity, in all countries. The ILO provides technical and institutional assistance to its tripartite constituents (governments, employers 'organizations and workers' organizations) in the Member States to achieve this goal. A Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP) is the document that defines, in each country, how constituents with the support of the ILO and other key partners work together towards the attainment of this objective.

    Following the results-based management (RBM) approach, the DWCP is based on a causal analysis of problems of decent work leading to the identification of priority areas of intervention, the delineation of short and medium-term strategic outcomes and an operational implementation plan. The DWCP is, thus, the strategic results framework set up around which the Government and the social partners (employers and workers) are committed to working in partnership with ILO and other key partners to achieve the goals of decent work in the country.

    The 2014-2016 DWCP of Ethiopia is, therefore, in principle a contribution to achieving the country's development priorities as defined in particular in the Plan for Accelerated and Sustained Development to End Poverty (PASDEP) (2005-2010), “creating employment opportunities” being one of the pillars that confirms the fact that the Government of Ethiopia recognizes the important link between productive employment, economic growth and poverty reduction. This was highlighted in the former national development plan, the Growth and Transformation Plan I (GTP I) (2010/11–2014/15), mainstreaming employment across all pillars. The current national development plan, GTP II (2015/16-2019/20), also reaffirms the Ethiopian Government’s commitment to continue its inclusive and pro-poor development strategy to further address the poverty and employment promotion challenges.

    The Decent Work Country Programme for Ethiopia (2014-2016) is a programme framework initiated by the tripartite partners (Government, Workers and Employers) to address country priorities identified in collaboration with the ILO Country Office. The programme implementation period was initially intended to be 2014-2015, but it was extended until the end of 2016 in order to align it with the country's Growth & Transformation Plan (GTP II) and the United Nations Development Assistance Framework for Ethiopia (UNDAF 2016-2020). The framework is aimed at facilitating the delivery of ILO's support to the country toward ensuring sustainable poverty reduction through the integration of decent work priorities with the national development agenda as set out in the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP I, 2010/11-2014/15) and UNDAF (2012-2015), which presents a planned response to the GTP I.

    The DWCP for Ethiopia (2014-2016) has three priorities as follows:

    1: Improving implementation of international labour standards and social dialogue with emphasis on compliance and coverage.
    2: Promoting decent employment for poverty reduction.
    3: Improving Social Protection for Sustainable Development.

    The task of the DWCP Review and formulation of the next DWCP is scheduled to be completed through the period of February-April 2017 during 45 work days. The review will look into the collaboration of the ILO and its partners and the coherence of the DWCP within a larger multi-agency context. The opportunity will also be used to ensure alignment of the new DWCP with the GTP II (2015/16-2019/20), and the current UNDAF (2016-2020).

    The main objectives of commissioning these consultancy are:
    • To undertake a Country Programme Review (CPR), which is a management tool carried out by those in charge of designing and developing the DWCP. Accordingly, the purpose of this is to examine the achievements made so far in attaining the outcomes identified and take stock of recommendations, lessons learned and challenges so as to formulate the next DWCP (2017-2020).
    • To support the ILO Office and constituents in the formulation of the next DWCP (2017-2020).
    The information will be used by the ILO Country Office for Ethiopia, Djibouti, Somalia, Sudan and South Sudan as well as the Regional Office for Africa (ROAF), constituents and key counterparts and Implementing Partners.

    The consultant/firm will undertake a comprehensive review of the DWCP from start to date using the ILO CPR criteria (relevance, validity, effectiveness, efficiency, capacities of the tripartite constituents and the ILO, impact, sustainability of results and lessons learnt) as the basis for its objectives and key questions, in order to ensure the veracity of the review. The following objectives will provide guidance to the assignment for the consultant:

    Armed conflict has a severe impact on the lives, livelihoods and basic human rights of communities. In conflicts around the world, tens of thousands of children are being recruited and used by armed forces and armed groups. The result of armed conflict crisis can lead to trafficking in persons and exploitation, including labour exploitation and trafficking of both adults and children, combined situations of labour and sexual exploitation and trafficking, forced labour and child labour including its worst forms. At its most damaging, this involves children and adults being trafficked across borders, forced into slavery and recruited and used by armed forces and groups.

    The framework of international standards governing the question of forced labour, modern slavery, human trafficking and child labour – including in emergency contexts – enjoys high ratification rates–evidence of a wide consensus that the protection of fundamental rights and the elimination of child labour are high priorities. They include the following.

    ILO Minimum Age Convention, 1973 (No. 138) (169 ratifications) calls for members to pursue a national policy designed to ensure the effective abolition of child labour and to raise progressively the minimum age for admission to employment or work consistent with the fullest physical and mental development of young persons (art. 1) and to specify a minimum age for admission to employment (art. 2), hazardous work (art. 3), and light work (art. 7). ILO Worst Forms of Child Labour Convention, 1999 (No. 182) (180 ratifications) calls for immediate and effective measures to be taken to secure the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labour (art. 1). Those measures shall be applied to all persons, girls and boys, under the age of 18 (art. 2). The worst forms of child labour are defined in article 3. The Recommendation, the non-binding guidelines that accompany ILO Convention No.182 gives some indication as to what work should be prohibited. National law, regulation or decree should provide a list with prohibited forms of hazardous labour. The Optional Protocol to the CRC on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography (173 ratifications) defines the sale of children as ‘any act or transaction whereby a child is transferred by any person or group of persons to another for remuneration or any other consideration’. The Optional Protocol on involvement of children in armed conflict (166 ratifications) prohibits the participation of children under the age of 18 in armed conflict, and governs both voluntary and forced recruitment of minors. The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (124 ratifications), adopted in 1998, qualifies the recruitment of children below 15 years for use in armed conflict as a war crime

    Security Council Resolution 1612 identifies the recruitment and use of children as one of six grave violations of children’s right and calls for the systematic monitoring and reporting to the council.

    ILO Forced labour Convention of 1930 (No. 29) (178 ratifications) calls for the abolishment of forced labour which it defines as "all work or service which is exacted from any person under the menace of any penalty and for which the said person has not offered himself voluntarily." In addition, ILO Convention 105 (174 ratifications) reports that forced labour can never be used for economic development or as an instrument of political education, discrimination, and discipline through work or as punishment for participating in a strike.

    The Palermo protocol (170 ratifications) to ‘Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children’ of 2000 inter alia calls for the prevention, suppression and punishment of all forms of trafficking in of children and broadens the definition of exploitation to include “at a minimum, the exploitation or the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs”.

    I*n September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)* which framed the global development agenda for the next 15 years. One of the seventeen goals (Goal No. 8) calls for the promotion of sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all by 2030. Target 8.7 under this goal states: take immediate and effective measures to eradicate forced labour, end modern slavery and human trafficking and secure the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labour, including recruitment and use of child soldiers, and by 2025 end child labour in all its form. One of the proposed indicators for target 8.7 is the percentage and numbers of children aged 5-17 years engaged in child labour, per sex and age group (disaggregated by the worst forms of child labour).

    Despite this strong international commitment, violations continue. It is a matter of priority and urgency that action must be further strengthened through informed programming to prevent and address violations of fundamental principles and rights, through advocacy and policy dialogue as well as through mechanisms that can hold perpetrators to account. Accurate and up to date information is key to taking such actions effectively. However, at the global level, there continues to be a lack of good information on violations in the context of armed conflict.

    In order to address the knowledge gap, in 2016 ILO and UNICEF conducted a joint consultation exercise and commissioned FAFO, an independent research institute to develop suitable methodologies to estimate the number of children associated with armed groups and forces. FAFO conducted extensive consultations and prepared a report concluding that the methodology for each country may vary according its context.

    Moving forward from the recommendations of the report, a broader coalition of partners who share similar priorities have joined hands to conduct a pilot study in three countries, that would not only include child soldiers but also trafficking and forced labour. ILO, IOM, UNICEF and Walk Free Foundation (WFF) have agreed to pool technical and financial resources to conduct this study as a pilot that would not only contribute producing to global estimates on child soldiers but will also enhance global understanding on the impact of armed conflict on forced labour and other worst forms of child labour. The pilot will be conducted in three countries: Nigeria, South Sudan and DRC.

    Rationale for selecting the three countries for the pilot

    The Secretary General’s Report on Children and Armed Conflict identifies Nigeria, South Sudan and DRC as countries where children are recruited and used in armed conflict. On certain occasions they are also used to perpetrate acts of extreme violence such as suicide bombings. Children as well as adults, particularly females in these countries are abducted and trafficked while some are subjected to forced marriage and used for sexual purposes. As such, the three selected countries have a significant caseload of child labour and forced labour that would allow for a substantive analysis.

    During periods of armed conflict in Nigeria, South Sudan, and DRC, an absence of the rule of law has often created a state of impunity, where traffickers in certain localities can act without the fear of arrest and condemnation. Trafficking in persons has turned into a means to achieve armed groups’ objectives, such as the recruitment of fighters and workforce, financing of the groups’ activities, providing for sexual services. Trafficking has also been linked to the ethnic and/or religious dimensions of the conflict, where there have been reports of the systematic trafficking and enslavement of ethnic minorities. There can also be a strong gender dimension to trafficking in times of crisis. In Nigeria, for example, Boko Haram has specifically targeted women and girls, with the mass abductions of women and girls in the territories under their control. There are profound links with sexual exploitation and sexual slavery.

    Armed conflict in Nigeria, South Sudan and DRC have created high levels of internal displacement. IDPs are considered amongst the most vulnerable populations to fall victim of trafficking and they are considered a target for traffickers. The general lack of economic opportunities and the increasing reliance on negative coping mechanisms can translate, in some cases, into heightened vulnerability to Trafficking among affected populations. Positions of vulnerability may be abused, while traffickers take advantage of the desperate economic and social conditions of the affected population. Furthermore, the negative coping mechanisms that some families and individuals affected by displacement adopt, such as forced early marriages and child labour, may directly result in exploitation and trafficking.

    IOM, one of the agencies conducting this survey has extensive IDP databases in the three selected countries. This provides a good basis and a starting point for the survey, particularly in developing the sampling framework. Moreover as the purpose of the study is to pilot a survey model, it is of particular importance that secondary factors such as logistics, local facilitation and data collection capacity do not pose any obstacle. As such selecting countries where one or more of the agencies commissioning this survey have significant presence will be a major contributing factor to successfully implementing it. UNICEF and IOM have sizable programmes and presence in the selected countries while ILO has a country office in Nigeria and has past experience working in child labour, trafficking, forced labour and other programmes in all three countries.


    As per the study conducted by FAFO, no single methodology will fit all countries and all circumstances. Therefore, a suitable methodology that takes into consideration the local context of the target country should be developed and adopted. In the case of the three selected countries, the IOM maintains an extensive database of displaced persons in each of these countries that includes information on family status, income, and vulnerability and contact details. The database provides a good basis for developing a stratified sample for the pilot study to randomly select respondents who would be interviewed. Data collection will be done by experienced IOM enumerators specially trained for the purpose of this survey, under the guidance of a protocol agreed by the Study Steering Committee (SSC). A two tier questionnaire with the first tier containing initial filter questions and the second tier containing detailed questions on violations (risk of trafficking and child recruitment) will be administered. The data thus collected will be cleaned, entered and analysed and a report will be drafted.

    The data so collected may be further enhanced and triangulated through key informant interviews, focus group interviews and where appropriate through statistical data from the Monitoring and Reporting Mechanism on Grave Child Rights Violations.

    Upon analysing the data, the draft report will be developed by the consultant (Study Coordinator) and presented to the SSC. The SSC may convene an expert workshop in which the draft report including the findings of the study will be discussed and validated. The final report will be produced incorporating the comments and feedback received at the validation workshop.

    The final report should be between 30 and 40 A4 pages excluding annexes, and should be appropriately formatted. Annexes may include the questionnaire, the survey protocol and other relevant documents.


    The survey is conducted jointly by four organisations, ILO, IOM, UNICEF and WFF. A Study Steering Committee (SSC) comprising specialists from each of the organisations will make overall decisions regarding the survey. Each agency will contribute through funds and technical expertise. On behalf of the SSC, ILO will recruit and provide direct supervision to the Study Coordinator. However on a regular basis, the Study Coordinator will interact closely with all the members of the SSC, who will also serve as link persons between the Study Coordinator and the respective agencies.

    IOM teams in the three countries will carry out the collection, cleaning and entering of the data. Each country team will be led by a National Survey Coordinator who has adequate knowledge and experience for the task. The Study Coordinator will coordinate the work of the three National Survey Coordinators to ensure the smooth implementation of the survey, in close collaboration with the SSC. Members of the SSC will provide technical inputs and may also participate in technical tasks such as developing and finalising the questionnaire, analysing the data and contributing to the final report.

    Overall Tasks and Responsibilities

    The Study Coordinator will be overall responsible for the timely completion of the survey and the finalisation of the survey report. He/she will take over from the point up to which the SSC has undertaken activities and see to the completion of the survey.

    I. Background

    The ILO Country Office for Thailand, Cambodia and Lao People’s Democratic Republic is looking for a consultant or team of consultants to contribute to the ILO’s work on improving and expanding social protection and occupational health and safety in Cambodia’s construction sector. The projects aim at identifying drivers and constraints for advancing these two goals in specific supply chains.

    The consultancy is a joint intervention of the ILO projects on Enhancing Occupational Safety and Health Standards in the Construction Sector in Cambodia (KHM/17/01/JPN), Social Protection for Informal Workers (KHM/16/04/OEC) and Supporting the Implementation of Sustainable Social Protection Floors for Workers and their Families in ASEAN (RAS/15/51/ROK). The consultant(S) will work closely with the ILO’s OSH Chief Technical Advisor and Social Protection Technical Officer for Cambodia with technical backstopping of the relevant technical specialists of the Decent Work Support Team based in Bangkok.

    As a labor-intensive industry, construction has traditionally provided an important entry point into the labour market for landless and unskilled workers. The recent construction boom in Cambodia has created new jobs and attracted a new workforce, namely women.[1] Unlike in the garment manufacturing sector, where women have traditionally been more active, the construction sector is much more prone to industrial accidents and injuries, and its workers are amongst the most vulnerable to ill health and poverty in case of maternity, disease, unemployment, disability, or old age, for lack of any form of social protection. In particular, the construction sector is associated with a disproportionally high share of serious work-related accidents and fatalities: the ILO estimates that one in five fatal accidents at work happen on a construction site.[2] Poor living and working conditions reflect the absence or lack of enforcement of labour and social regulation covering workers in this sector.

    Consequently, the construction sector has been identified by the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training (MoLVT) as a priority sector for this intervention. The ILO agrees on the large-scale potential of this sector to facilitate decent work and poverty reduction for both women and men. However, the construction sector as a whole is not a homogeneous group The industry is characterized by complex sub-contracting arrangements, some of these sub-contractors may be formal enterprises, but many MSMEs operate in the informal sector. Individual workers tend to be engaged on a casual basis and without written contracts, which makes for low and irregular incomes. Many informal workers lack personal identification and bank accounts.These differences and atypical working arrangements can be of particular importance when it comes to accessing statutory benefits as traditional systems of formal social protection tend to rely on defined and stable employer-employee relationships.

    A value chain “describes the full range of activities that are required to bring a product or service from conception, through the intermediary phases of production and delivery to final consumers”.[3] This includes activities such as design, production, marketing, distribution and support services, up to the final consumer and are thus often divided among several businesses. A sector, on the other hand, refers to areas of the economy in which business share the same or related products or services. Sectors are broader than value chains, and within sectors we often find several value chains. For example, within commercial and institutional building construction, there are value chains for plumbing, electrical, glass and woodwork contractors, amongst many others.

    Value chains are part of wider market systems which include a number of actors providing ‘supporting functions’ to businesses in the core value chain, as well as actors who set and enforce ‘rules’ about how value chain actors operate. Other key components of the market system are the ‘rules of the game’, which govern the way that actors in the value chain operate. These include labour legislation, regulations at all levels of government, quality standards and government policies and the degree to which these are enforced.

    The Rapid Market and Supply Chain Assessment (RMA) intends to generate evidence on the construction market system in Cambodia. The research will borrow from the methodology employed to carry out value chain research and analysis with a particular focus on improving social conditions, including OSH and social protection.


    The objective of the assignment is to:

    i. Conduct an RMA to map the Cambodian construction market system and produce a longlist of the most relevant value chains within it, ranked according to their potential to advance the project’s dual goal of expanding OSH and social protection, for the latter specifically Employment Injury Insurance (EII).

    ii. Conduct a value chain analysis (VCA) of the selected value chain with an OSH and social protection risk assessment. The VCA will include an identification of the dynamics and constraints in the value chain as well as an identification of the social protection, occupational safety and health risks faced by workers at the different stages of production and a sense of what the underlying factors are.

    The objective of these tasks is to provide a comprehensive overview of the value chain and its market environment, as well as to single out areas of possible performance (implementation and administration) issues related to OSH and social protection in the selected supply chain.


    Duration: 40 days from the signing date, with completion of deliverables no later than September 31, 2017.

    Expected places of travel: Home-based for preparation and report writing. Two missions to Phnom Penh and other locations as required.


    • At least 10 years post Master’s relevant experience working in developing countries with substantial experience working on value chain development, particularly in South East Asia.

    • Strong analytical capacity, including the ability to analyze and articulate differences of positions among various stakeholders and develop acceptable solutions.

    • Experience with the ILO Guide on Value Chain Development for Decent Work is a plus.

    • Previous work experience in working conditions, specially sound understanding of OSH and social protection in developing country settings. Record of work with the construction industry is a plus.

    • Previous work experience with the ILO or other multi-lateral organizations is desirable.

    • Excellent English writing, communication and presentation skills.

    • Ability to work independently to coordinate the research project with the local team.
