Coco chips are widely used by farmers and gardeners. The ILO’s LEED+ project works with the private sector and local communities in Sri Lanka to develop coco chips as a mutually beneficial business. With an estimated three billion coconuts produced in Sri Lanka annually, they are unsurprisingly a staple of local cuisine as well as a major export commodity. Coco chips are used by gardeners and in agriculture around the world and Mr Nadaraja recently became a supplier to TropiCoir Pvt Ltd., one of Sri Lanka’s leading exporters of coco substrates. #smallbusiness #enterpreneur #coconut #srilanka

The ILO estimates that there are currently 11.6 million documented migrant workers residing in the South-East Asia and the Pacific subregion. Of the migrant workers in the region, 5.2 million are women. Women migrant workers compose the majority of workers in several sectors: domestic work, entertainment, seafood processing, electronics manufacturing, and garment manufacturing, among others. Despite their crucial contributions to the economies and societies of both origin countries and destination, migrant workers, especially women, frequently experience gender-based inequalities, exploitation, and sometimes violence during the migration process, which compound the prejudice and discrimination they experience as migrant workers. The negative attitudes towards migrant workers can be eliminated by social inclusion, interaction with migrant workers, and engagement with migrant communities. Let's be conscious to stop negative thinking. It's our duty to break those barriers. #internationalmigrantsday #womenatwork #migration #humanrights

The #COVID19 crisis has affected everyone. Frontline workers have suffered enormous stress. People working from home have been exposed to specific psychosocial risks, such as isolation, blurred boundaries between work and family, increased risk of domestic violence, among others. The fear of job losses, pay cuts, lay-offs and reduced benefits have made many workers question their future. All this has serious consequences on mental health.
