Project Description

FAO started recovery and reconstruction operations. Nearly three quarters of Pakistan’s labour force works in the informal sector and their contribution to GDP is estimated at significant 37%. Having no control over production processes, informal women workers are vulnerable and dependent on those supplying them with work, often middlemen.

FAO, ILO and UNWOMEN intends to establish a baseline of the vulnerabilities, living conditions and socio-economic situation of targeted peasant communities and small landowners in districts Dadu and Mirpurkhas.
