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.
