On behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the GIZ project “Future of Work” of the fund “Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development” advises partner countries of German Development Cooperation (DC) on the opportunities and risks of the future of work. The project supports the exchange of knowledge and experience between government, academic and civil society actors through dialogue-based activities at three levels.
Within the framework of comprehensive country studies, trends and developments in two partner countries (India, Rwanda) are identified and analysed, and possible scenarios for the future of work are developed in order to use the potential for more and better jobs and to develop cross-sectoral strategies.
Regional and supra-regional dialogue
In cooperation with representatives of governments, the private sector, trade unions and other social groups, peer learning activities are organised to promote the exchange of knowledge and experience between partner countries in Africa and Asia.
Based on the regional activities and the results of the country studies, close cooperation with international organisations is promoted in order to establish the “future of work” as a central topic on the international agenda and to contribute to the development of common positions.
