Why does no one speak up for the International Labour Organization following its blacklisting as “poor value for money” by the UK Multilateral Aid Review?
Now the ILO has published a detailed response. It says that the UK government is measuring value simply by counting outcomes such as the number of vaccinations etc.
I agree with the ILO defence which says that development is more complicated than that. The organization has taken responsibility for coordinating a global response to child labour and has been successful in pushing the concept of “decent work” up the MDGs agenda.
