 Issue briefs

Recognizing the heterogeneity of workers' realities in the informal economy, the guidebook contains a number of references to specific groups of workers that in many countries represent a significant share of workers in the informal economy, and which are often considered as groups that are particularly difficult to cover. A series of issue briefs reflect the specific challenges and good practices for selected sectors and categories of workers: 

  Domestic workers

 Agricultural workers

Self-employed/own-account workers

 Workers in small and micro enterprises (MSEs)

 Construction workers
