The Centre’s training in sustainable development aims to reinforce institutional and managerial capacity to attain the Millennium Development Goals and to put the ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization into effect. The economic crisis has heightened the need for sustainable development policies and strategies that reconcile economic goals with social, labour and environmental objectives.
Building capacity to put such policies and strategies into place in a cost-effective and socially responsible manner can go a long way towards a fairer process of globalization.
Because no model for sustainable development is “fit-for-all”, the Centre shapes its learning portfolio for the entire range of stakeholders who need to take an active role in the participatory governance mechanisms which are indispensable for sustainable development to work well for all men and women, and for society as a whole.
By virtue of its long-established partnerships, the Centre is in a privileged position to package its learning portfolio using the latest thinking and best practices that are promoted by the multilateral system for cost-effective use of resources invested in economic and social development.
Our training covers public sector management and human resources management within the context of the new role of the State, public procurement management, programme and project-cycle management, the social impact of international trade and investment, and corporate social responsibility. In addition to specific courses on gender in development, the Centre embeds gender equality in all its training and learning activities.
