It is based on Article 12 of the Development Cooperation Instrument (DCI)1, and is detailed in the Strategy Paper for the Thematic Programme 2007-2013. Part of the fourth theme of the programme –‘Other aspects of human and social development’– is dedicated to addressing inequalities and promoting social cohesion, fostering the ‘decent work’ agenda, and employment. The overall objective of the call for proposals is to contribute to poverty reduction and to social inclusion for workers in the informal economy and vulnerable groups.
The development of sustainable initiatives (including capacity building of local communities) to strengthen social protection and employment at community level for workers in the informal economy and/or vulnerable groups as well as the dissemination and exchanges of related good practices at local, national or transnational level.
