Thousands of homeworkers contributed, directly or indirectly, to the demands contained in this Platform.
The Platform draws on information gathered from home-based workers over many years, including the Delhi Declaration, adopted by over 100 delegates from 24 countries at the Global Conference on Home-based Workers in February 2015. This has been supplemented by research and statistics produced by WIEGO.
In March 2016 affiliates of HomeNet South Asia and HomeNet South East Asia participated in formulating the demands for the final platform, which was then circulated to home-based worker and support groups in Latin America, Africa and Eastern Europe. Countries involved in this consultative process include: India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Maldives, Bhutan, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Cambodia, Bulgaria, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Kenya, Uganda, and South Africa.
