SHIP TO SHORE RIGHTS EVENTS
The four specific project objectives are:
- Strengthen the legal, policy and regulatory framework in the fishing and seafood sectors by raising labour standards and facilitating more legal migration into the seafood and fishing sectors.
- Enhance the capacity of Government officers, including the labour inspectorate, to more effectively identify and take action against human trafficking and other labour rights abuses in the fishing and seafood processing sectors.
- Improve compliance with the fundamental principles and rights at work (core labour standards) in the seafood and fishing industries through the implementation of the Good Labour Practices (GLP), and help scale up an effective complaints mechanism with increased awareness and ownership across the supply chain.
- Enhance access to support services to workers and victims of labour abuses, including children, through engagement and empowerment of civil society organizations and trade unions.
The project is implemented by the ILO Country Office for Thailand, Cambodia and Lao PDR with funding from the European Union (EU). Activities will be carried out in cooperation with a number of Royal Thai Government Units including the Department of Labour Protection and Welfare and the Department of Employment in the Ministry of Labour, the Department of Fisheries in the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, and the Command Centre to Combat Illegal Fishing (CCCIF); trade unions, workers associations and civil society organizations; employers’ organizations, industry associations and buyers and retailers groups.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”5539″ img_size=”full” alignment=”right”][vc_empty_space height=”150px”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
