Southern African Team for Employment Promotion (SATEP)

The Southern African Team for Employment Promotion (SATEP) was a regional employment team originally based in Lusaka, Zambia (later moving to Harare, Zimbabwe in 1991). The team focuses on income policy and employment creation, particularly in non-formal sectors of the economy. It represented Namibia, Malawi, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

SATEP provides support for labour legislation, labour relations and labour administration and provides supported to a number of programmes of the ILO including providing and organising training courses, workshops and policy-oriented seminars on employment and development issues.

The team was also responsible for creating a computerised database covering economic development and the labour market for the benefit of ILO’s constituents and of researchers working on development issues.
