Against this background, the contractor will carry out research to develop the study regarding Zimbabwe of a total length between 15 and 25 pages. The research and analysis will be anchored in the 2017 RS|SR and other relevant authoritative sources (i.e. the General Comment N. 25 of the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights).

  2. Enabling environment.
