Developing consensual policies

The need to link structural adjustment packages more closely to medium-term development strategies is now widely recognized. The success of these strategies depends on the ability of policy-makers to obtain the agreement of competing interest groups in order to obtain support for a sustainable economic strategy.
ILO investigates the substantive and procedural issues that need to be taken into account in order to achieve sustainable adjustment through the development of tripartite understanding.
Political sustainability of adjustment policies can be enhanced through greater participation and dialogue involving governments, employers and trade unions.
