Background

Background

Decent work and productive employment are at the centre of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This is most prominent in Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 8 on decent work and sustainable and inclusive growth. Decent work is also present in many other SDGs and their targets. Decent work is directly and indirectly linked to, amongst others, SDG 1 on Poverty Eradication, SDG 4 on Education, SDG 5 on Gender Equality, SDG 9 on Industry Innovation and Infrastructure, SDG 10 on Non-discrimination, SDG 13 on Climate Action as well as SDG 16 on Just and Peaceful Societies.

To further facilitate understanding of the linkages between the ILO Decent Work Agenda and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the ILO developed the "Decent Work 4 Sustainable Development Resource Platform" (DW4SD). The DW4SD resource platform is an interactive tool, which provides guidance and support to position decent work in SDG processes at the national level.

This course is built around the DW4SD Resource Platform and will foster an in-depth understanding of the Decent Work-Sustainable-Development (DW-SD) nexus. It will approach the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development through different decent work related thematic areas such as: youth employment, social protection, informal economy, and facilitate interlinkages between both the Decent Work Agenda and the SDGs.

Furthermore, participants will have an enhanced understanding of the centrality of employment and decent work in national policy frameworks and SDG processes such as: processes National SDG Plans, Voluntary National Reviews, UN Development Assistance Frameworks, Decent Work Country Programmes and MAPs, both at the formulation stage and at the implementation and monitoring stages.

Sessions will cover: the 2030 Agenda and its 17 goals, targets and indicators (including the domestication of SDG indicators); the implementation of SDGs through the integration of decent work in national sustainable development policies and processes,  identifying those who are being left behind and how to apply this principle in SDG processes; good practices and case studies on advancing the DW-SD nexus, ...
