This programme will provide young Nepalis with the opportunities to improve their employability, productivity and decision-making. It will continue and expand DFID’s ambition on skills training in Nepal, by providing skills training to at least 100,000 poor and disadvantaged young Nepalis - especially women- so that they can access better jobs and higher incomes. In response to the April 2015 earthquake, one component will focus DFID resources on providing skills to Nepalis in earthquake-resistant housing construction to help with the enormous reconstruction needs in earthquake-affected districts.
This programme aims to maximise the development potential of free movement of peresons in the Economic Community for West Africa States (ECOWAS) by supporting the effective implementation of the ECOWAS legal and policy framework or free movement and migration. The programme will be implemented by a consortium of partners, under IOM's lead and in close coordination with the ECOWAS Commission. The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) are the two implementing partners.
The programme will target the worst forms of child labour in Asia, including bonded child labour. It will invest in building new evidence of how best to tackle child labour, pilot and assess different approaches and support policy dialogue with governments and regional bodies. As a regional programme, it will also engage closely with DFID country offices to help them scale up work on child labour in their programmes in the future.
A Technical Assistance project to better train and place Nepalis in both domestic and international jobs. By primarily using a Challenge Fund mechanism, SEP will partner with the private sector to bring in innovative training models to address key gaps while also leveraging private sector resources. Models will focus on solutions in the ICT, tourism, commercial agriculture, light manufacturing, and hydropower sectors, all of which are key economic drivers for Nepal. The project will also look at partnering with relevant government entities to evaluate and recommend public training models, as well as develop skilling capacity at the provincial level. Along the way, SEP will provide targeted support to build capacity in key skilling areas with other Development Partners. The migration piece of SEP will focus on harnessing the benefits of migration for Nepal’s workforce and economic development. SEP will demonstrate a number of cost-effective models to increase migrants’ skills; lower financing and other costs of traveling abroad; and, increase savings and investment of remittances. Cross cutting will be financial literacy. SEP will work in tandem with efforts by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and other key counterparts in Nepal and Asia, which depends heavily on Nepali migrants. As a result, the project will help overcome the skills mismatch, reaching over 90,000 Nepalis with an increase in income attributed to the project. Of these beneficiaries, 40% are likely to be women and 30% from Disadvantaged Groups (DAGs) including Persons with Disabilities (PwDs). As DFID’s implementing partner on this initiative, Louis Berger will coordinate its strategies and activities with major public, private sector, donor community, including donor agencies, and other stakeholders who are involved in providing support to the GoN in skills development.

ILO/ UNDP Employment support through labor-intensive infrastructure measures, Phase II
Key objective is to influence government to ensure fair practices in factories in terms of- workplace safety, labour standards and responsible business conduct.To drive up the quality of jobs in the garment sector and beyond, the programme is working with government to improve capacity to regulate safety and labour standards in factories.

This will contribute in achieving the SDG target 8.8 of protecting labour rights and promote safe and secure working environments for all workers.
The International Labour Organization's Better Work Programme helps improve labour standards and reduce gender discrimination in garment factories in developing countries, in partnership with the private sector. Funding under this investment will be used to improve and expand the programme including increasing the support for existing factories and bringing additional factories into the programme in countries within Australia’s region of strategic interest, namely: Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia and Vietnam. Some factories that supply Australian companies and brands will be included. The programme works directly to improve the lives of a large number of women. It targets the garment industry, of which 75 per cent of workers in developing countries are female. In this investment, between 65 and 90 per cent of worker programme participants will be female, depending on the target country. The investment's total value is $8.3 million over 7 years, starting 2015-16.
