HDR 2015 Sierra Leone Country Note
Work can enhance human development when policies are taken to expand productive, remunerative and satisfying work opportunities; enhance workers’ skills and potentials; and ensure their rights, safety, and wellbeing. Measuring aspects of work, both positive and negative, can help shape policy agendas and track progress toward human development enhancing work. But many countries are missing international data at the country level on key indicators including child labour, forced labour, unpaid care work, time use, labour regulations, and social protection. This limits the ability of countries to monitor progress on these fronts.
