Promoting productive rural employment

Encouraging efficient use of rural labour
Expanding farm related work
ILO advises on the design of rural development policies and development projects so as to make them more cost-effective and sustainable. The intent is to promote productive employment and reduce poverty for men and women in the farm and non-farm sectors of rural areas.
Encouraging the efficient use of rural labour and promoting agricultural growth are the most important means of reducing rural underemployment in lower income countries.
