Referring simultaneously to the broad definition of sustainable development adopted by the United Nations, which postulates an intrinsic relation between economic, social and environmental well-being, SDP takes as a more concrete starting point the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Among the 17 SDGs, particular attention is devoted – from an ILO perspective – to goal 8, which aims to “Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all”.

SDP is currently offering activities linked in different ways to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 SDGs, aligned to the five areas of expertise listed below:

 

SDP designs and delivers courses in partnership with the ILO, UN sister agencies and key international institutions like the World Bank, regional development banks, universities, and inter-governmental organizations.

Our training activities are currently delivered in English, French, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic. Many of them, particularly the short open courses and the Masters programmes, are delivered in Turin, but tailored activities and capacity-building projects are frequently delivered in the respective partner’s country.

We also provide advisory services for public procurement reform at the legal, institutional and managerial levels, as well as assistance in designing, implementing and evaluating development projects and programmes.

In partnership with the University of Turin and in collaboration with other international organizations, the Sustainable Development Programme – within the context of the Turin School of Development  – offers a number of Masters programmes that prepare new graduates and professionals, from both developed and developing countries, for immediate involvement in social and economic development work and/or for the performance of jobs that require an understanding of the rules of the globalized economy.

 

Areas of expertise

Decent work and sustainable development

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.

Enterprise Development

Enterprises are a principal source of growth, wealth creation, employment and decent work. The ITC-ILO support countries in the creation of enterprises that are productive, competitive and contribute to social inclusion, while producing in an environmentally sustainable manner.

Green jobs

The move towards a “green economy” has been gaining momentum in parallel with the international debate and negotiations on climate change.

Procurement management

Public procurement management is a cornerstone of good governance.

Project and programme cycle management

For a long time, the desired outcomes of development programmes and projects were compromised by a shortage of well-trained project staff.
