Mapping of the past, current and future work of the regional HomeNets to address challenges relating to homes doubling up as workplaces
There are over 1.5 million home-based workers in Nepal, who represent 22 per cent of total employment.
ILO report analyzes the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on supply chains in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay.
Globally, 260 million women and men are employed in home-based work, including 35 million in developed countries.
In recent years, home-based work has grown in Pakistan. This growth is due to an increase in the number of women doing home-based work, while the number of men in home-based work has declined.
There are several million home-based workers in Bangladesh, who represent 5 percent of non-agricultural employment and 12 percent of agricultural employment.
Between 2011-12 and 2017-18, the number of home-based workers decreased significantly. The drop was greater than the drop in India’s total employment and was largely due to the significant decrease in the employment of women in home-based agricultural work.
India’s growth story is a paradox. While India has seen impressive growth in its Gross Domestic Product and per capita income, these gains have not been evenly distributed.
