The adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development requires governments and stakeholders to monitor progress towards the defined goals and targets relating to decent work and economic growth. The 19th, 20th, and 21st ICLS Resolutions on work statistics are crucial for the analysis of decent-work-related SDG indicators, particularly SDG 8 on promoting inclusive and sustainable growth, employment and decent work for all. A strong statistical system for producing, collecting and disseminating reliable, comprehensive and timely labour-market information is critical for evidence-based policy-making which promotes "full and productive employment and decent work for all". The ILO Department of Statistics, in close collaboration with the International Training Centre of the ILO, is proud to be organizing the 2024 Labour Market Statistics and Analysis Academy, with a particular focus on the outcomes of the 20th and 21st ICLS recommendations concerning emerging trends in the world of work and the SDG monitoring framework for measuring decent work and supporting evidence-based policy-making. The main objective of the Academy is to better equip and situate national and international stakeholders in the new SDG statistical monitoring system in the context of the main outcomes of the 20th and 21st ICLS recommendations. The Academy is designed to enhance institutional capacity for identifying, collecting, analysing and disseminating labour-market information and other indicators related to decent work. Moreover, the Academy emphasizes the 20th ICLS and 21st ICLS resolutions on the statistics of work relationships and measuring informality as important pillars for measuring progress towards the 2030 agenda, particularly Goal 8 on promoting inclusive and sustainable growth, employment and decent work for all.
