The promotion of Decent Work features prominently in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted at the UN Summit on Sustainable Development held in New York in September 2015.

Explicitly linked to goal 8 of the SDGs, the promotion of Decent Work is also implicitly referenced under many targets linked to the other sixteen goals. The training activities of the Centre aim to strengthen the capacity of ILO constituents and other relevant stakeholders to analyse the link between Decent Work and Sustainable Development and to formulate and implement strategies and approaches to make Decent Work for All a reality.
