The WIEGO Network consists of individuals and institutions from three broad constituencies:
membership-based organizations (MBOs) of informal workers such as trade unions, cooperatives, and worker associations
researchers and statisticians who carry out research, data collection, or data analysis on the informal economy
practitioners from development agencies (inter-governmental, governmental, and non-governmental) who provide services to or shape policies towards the informal workforce
WIEGO's founders decided that the WIEGO network should build alliances and draw on the expertise of individuals and institutions from each of these constituencies around the globe.
