what is a thematic synthesis
In addition to the annual public synthesis reports that provide transparent information regarding working conditions in the factories participating in the programme, Better Work Jordan produces a report each year on a chosen theme with relevance to the national garment industry. This will allow the programme to look more in-depth at relevant issues. This, the first such thematic report for Better Work Jordan focuses on fire safety.
The Better Work programme, a partnership between the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), worked in collaboration with local and international stakeholders to design Better Work Jordan, launched in February 2008. It was established at the request of the Government of Jordan which, along with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is a major donor.
