ABSTRACT

The following pages report on an independent mid-term evaluation of the Enabling Social Dialogue (ESD) project of WageIndicator, with a budget of € 491.952 over the period 2013-2015.  Assuming this budget is fully applied, and counting start-up activities begun in 2011, total funding up to the end of 2015 will slightly exceed one million Euros.

Programming for the five countries involved – Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda -- pivots on the WageIndicator model, a system developed over 14 years and operating in more than 80 countries. The ESD project introduced an innovation to the usual employee-oriented model: a second website in each country (except Rwanda) oriented toward employers. Among workers, the extent of project relevance roughly equates with the degree of their incorporation in formal labour markets and with their ease of access to and familiarity with internet-based activities. Offline (face-to-face) activities show higher relevance for a wider range of working people, sometimes even the informally-employed. Purposes and design of the project are well-aligned with international efforts to promote policy, such as about Decent Work, and with efforts by researchers and academics to promote improved knowledge of job markets and labour relations.
