"In years to come, the effectiveness of our response to this existential threat may be judged not just by the scale and speed of the cash injections, or whether the recovery curve is flat or steep, but by what we did for the most vulnerable among us."
– Guy Ryder, Director-General, International Labour Organization

As the full impact of the COVID-19 crisis keeps unfolding under our eyes, measures are being designed and deployed globally to mitigate health, socio-economic and human losses. The world of work and its future are at the centre of the global discussion on recovery, and the “Leave no one behind” principle at the core of the 2030 Agenda becomes a powerful tool towards making sure that the voice of those who are most impacted is heard and that existing vulnerabilities are not further deepened.
Starting from the historical and conceptual framework of SDGs where the “LNOB” principle was generated, this learning journey will guide participants towards a renewed understanding of its meaning and implications in the context of the current crisis and of the future post-COVID global landscape, with a particular focus on the world of work.
This online training will cover the theory and practice of the “leave no one behind” principle. Using gender an intersectionality as a lens to identify and analyse vulnerability factors, participants will be accompanied towards making sense of the current reality as impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and learn how to apply such understanding towards keeping on track with achieving equality for all, decent work and all other SDGs.
Some of the questions that will be addressed in the training are
You will acquire and make sense of the latest data and evidence on the gendered and intersectional impact of the crisis globally and across regions. You will learn how to use analytical and planning tools to effectively integrate the LNOB principle in your action planning for sustainable development and decent work.
