SANEM has started the “Better Work Bangladesh Impact Assessment Study”

SANEM has started a new project on impact assessment of the intervention program of Better Work Bangladesh (BWB) with Better Work Global (BWG) in the textile and garment industry in Bangladesh. The intervention is a global program for improved labor standards in global supply chains jointly by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC). The objective of this project is to design a system to evaluate the impact of the newly established Better Work Program in Bangladesh. The impact assessment will explore whether improved working conditions, as driven by BWB operations, lead to changes in working conditions, workers’ wellbeing, performances of firms, the mechanisms through which social dialogue at factory level can change the above-mentioned outcomes and so on.
