Dear Listers,

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) is
the German federal agency in international cooperation for sustainable
development. The Gig Economy initiative at GIZ aims to foster favourable
framework conditions for fair work in the gig economy at the level of
workers, platforms and critical stakeholders from politics, business and
civil society.

Despite the rapid expansion of the gig economy globally, the real-life
experiences of gig workers in low- and middle-income countries has been
overlooked. A study conducted by the Gig Economy Initiative aims to
understand the skills needs and gaps of gig workers, with a gendered lens
to reveal the unique challenges women face. As part of this study a survey
has been designed to capture data on the: logistics of their work, support
networks, working conditions and future prospects and opportunities of
these workers.

The Gig Economy initiative at GIZ aims to foster favourable framework
conditions for fair work in the gig economy at the level of workers,
platforms and critical stakeholders from politics, business and civil
society.

We are requesting *your support* in the dissemination of this survey
amongst your networks and contacts to gig workers who are engaged via
digital labour platforms. Gig workers include: ride-share drivers,
data-labellers, bike-couriers, houseworkers, developers and anyone who
finds their work via an online platform.

Survey Link: ee.kobotoolbox.org/x/6TIhcGRA (completion time 5-7
mins)

The survey will close on the 15th of December 2022 and can be accessed both
on a computer and mobile.

The final study will be released early to mid-2023 and GIZ will be happy to
keep you updated on developments.
