To this end, one Hosting Structure is selected per country, a local actor who convenes and facilitates the policy dialogue process, acting as an impartial and honest ‘broker’. The key role of these Hosting Structures consist of enabling local CSOs, social partners and other relevant actors to play an active role in the identification of the key institutional capacity gaps for the fulfilment of partner country obligations under the UN & ILO conventions.
CdM and NIMD contribute their specific knowledge on results-oriented dialogue and engagement of political leadership and political parties. The consortium assists the Hosting Structures in the facilitation of the dialogue processes and the monitoring of the resulting roadmaps for the adoption or reform of national policies in line with the selected conventions. EPD, along with these partners, works towards ensuring that these dialogues are inclusive and participatory, that no key stakeholder is left behind and that discussions are informed by actual and reliable evidence.
