GLOBAL LABOR SECTOR ANALYTIC INITIATIVE
Welcome to the Global Labor Sector Analytic Initiative (GLaSAI) website, a dynamic knowledge bank about the impact of the labor sector on political, social, and economic development. Recognizing that labor sector issues affect many of the most pressing development needs such as livelihoods, human rights, competitiveness, human trafficking, and HIV/AIDS, among others, the GLaSAI website provides access to the research, tools, experts, and technical assistance needed to design, implement, and evaluate labor sector programming in the context of country-specific or global objectives. By analyzing country-specific contexts, GLaSAI is able to offer concrete recommendations about, and tools for, achieving measurable progress against a wide range of development objectives through targeted labor sector interventions. Practical findings of the analytic initiative are presented for policy makers, country team leaders, technical officers, implementing partners, and researchers in “Why Labor Matters."
In addition to technical tools and country assessments, GLaSAI seeks to support whole-of-government and stakeholder-driven approaches to labor sector programming through topic papers and discussion fora.
