This comprehensive, easy-to-use guide describes how large scale labor-based infrastructure programs, carried out by contract, should be developed. The practical guidelines presented in this book introduce cost-effective, employment-intensive approaches to infrastructure works while exploring how socioeconomic objectives such as employment, conditions of work and labor standards can be integrated into private sector programs of this nature. Aiming to facilitate a healthy domestic construction industry in developing countries, this guide presents policies that lead to greater employment and cost savings. It also examines the enforcement of relevant labor standards such as wages and productivity, working conditions, and looks at the role of workers' and employers' organizations. A useful glossary of terms as well as comprehensive lists of additional resources are also included.
