The first call for proposals to devise innovative solutions for labour formalisation and just transition in the country awarded funding to inclusive and innovative actions that foster the cooperation of public, private and trade union organisations and that develop sustainable projects for inclusion.

Last September 2023, the ILO awarded six proposals as part of the contest to boost formal employment through green jobs in Argentina.

The winning projects received financial support to develop their proposals, as well as technical assistance. The projects were selected after an evaluation process by a tripartite committee made up of representatives of the government, the employer sector, trade union centres and the ILO.

This activity was developed by ILO under PAGE and the project “Innovative solutions for an inclusive and gender-sensitive employment recovery oriented to the transition to the formal economy in Argentina”. PAGE introduces to you the winning projects.
