International Labour Organisation (ILO)

ILO Country Office for Zambia, Malawi & Mozambique

Purpose of consultancy:

On June 21, 2019, the International Labour Organization’s International Labour
Conference (ILC) adopted the Violence and Harassment Convention No.190 and
Recommendation No.206.The ILC further adopted the Centenary Declaration on the
Future of Work, expressing a clear commitment to a world of work free from
violence and harassment.
The adoption of the Convention and recommendation was very significant; it is
the first-ever international standard aimed at ending violence and harassment
in the world of work and that the right to a world of work free from violence
and harassment has been articulated in an international treaty. The adoption
of this first International Labour Standard at the beginning of the second
Century of the ILO is a historic opportunity and a call for action to shape a
future of work based on dignity and respect in the workplace.
Zambia was among the 439 countries that voted for the adoption of the
Convention concerning the elimination of violence and harassment in the world
of work (No.190) and its accompanying recommendation (No.206) on 21st June
2019 at the International Labour Conference in Geneva, Switzerland. Zambia
also made commitments to the ratification, domestication and implementation of
articles of the convention and its recommendation, later in June 2020, the
ratification and implementation roadmap for C190 and its accompanying
recommendation No. 2016 was developed by the employers, workers and government
of Zambia. However, there has been slow pace in terms of ratification and
implementation of C190 in the country considering the fact that it’s now 2
years from the time the convention was adopted. The gap analysis is a key
input into the outputs and outcomes for the ratification and implementation
roadmap for C190. There is no information and evidence on where we are coming
from (what has been done), where we are (what is being done) and where we
ought to be in terms of having a just and sustained world of work free from
violence and harassment. There may also be variances and meeting points
between Zambian Laws and the International Labour Standards (C190 and
Recommendation 206) that could have contributed to the slow pace in
ratification and implementation.

The C190 ratification implementation roadmap recognizes the power of research
(gap analysis) to educate, inform and influence various key stakeholders in
the country with evidence based information and data, thereby increasing
awareness to the public by unpacking the information and knowledge gaps that
could exist. Furthermore, the findings of the gap analysis will direct public
interest towards topical issues, thereby generating interest from decision-
makers to address issues that are in the lime light.

As part of the C190 implementation and ratification roadmap to be implemented,
a gap analysis is identified as an opportunity to address the difference and
similarity between C190 and the various laws of the republic of Zambia on
Gender, Violence and Harassment in the world of work and that of articles of
C190 and its recommendation. The ratification roadmap seeks to conduct a gap
analysis on the Zambian laws, C190 and its accompanying recommendation.
Through the gap analysis, it is envisaged that the differences and
similarities between various Zambian Laws and C190 will be identified,
presented at the National Dialogue to key stakeholders.
The objective of the consultancy is to conduct a gap analysis of Zambian Law
and practice in respect of Convention No.190 to establish Zambia’s readiness
