dc.description<p>This report attempts to summarise World Bank's approach and policy advice regarding labour legislation in the Agriculture sector of six different countries, Indonesia, Philippines, Bangladesh, India, Morocco and Chile which were selected as country cases by the Oxfam International Labour Rights team.</p> <p>The report identifies the 'cautious' and the 'less cautious' approach employed by the World Bank and relates these strategies to the Agriculture sector of these countries. It looks at labour rights issues, minimum wage, cost of hiring and firing of workers and the effect of these on agricultural workers in the selected countries.</p> <p>The review discovers that World Bank's Policy and advice for India, Morocco, Chile and Indonesia follow the less cautious approach which does not necessarily comply with 'Core Labour Standards' and labour legislation while in Bangladesh, the cautious approach which focuses on compliance with Core Labour Standards and protection of workers is being implemented. On the other hand, World Bank documents regarding the Philippines lack any reference to labour legislation and core labour standards.</p>en_US
