Sustainable Tourism and Local Development
The course Sustainable Tourism and Local Development was held on the Aguas de São Pedro university campus in the state of São Paolo, Brazil, from 14 to 19 April, with the collaboration of SENAC São Paolo. The programme examined the key elements that enable tourism to become an instrument for development and the reduction of poverty (fundamental concepts in the local tourism sector), the segments of cultural tourism and nature tourism, and the instruments for territorial planning needed to articulate tourism as a local development strategy.
Employment Policies and Skills Development
The ILO has always emphasized the central role of employment and decent work in achieving sustainable development goals. Global policy frameworks including the Global Employment Agenda (2003), the Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization (2008), and the Global Jobs Pact (2009) set out a coherent vision and provide guidance on how to combine growth with more and better jobs.
Enterprise, Microfinance and Local Development (EMLD)
The Enterprise, Microfinance and Local Development Programme uses the results of ILO research to design courses and training packages. Its courses focus on disseminating good practice and methodology. Training draws on the expertise of the global team of ILO enterprise development and social finance specialists.
Sustainable Development and Governance
We provide learning and training opportunities that aim: to enhance professionalism and integrity in the management of public resources in support of good governance and sustainable development; to reinforce capacity to analyse the impact of trade and investment on equitable national development.
The Programme for Workers’ Activities is the training arm of the Bureau for Workers' Activities (ACTRAV) of the ILO. The Programme responds to the training needs of workers' organizations through courses, materials, projects and advisory services.
