WIEGO Organization and Representation Database (WORD)

WORD – the WIEGO Organization & Representation Database – is a dynamic resource providing information on organizations that organize workers in the informal economy.

This database is maintained through ongoing research and outreach efforts. We hope those concerned with improving the situation of informal workers will help us improve WORD by providing updated, complete information.
