Description

Description

This course will contribute to an in-depth understanding of the relationship between the Decent Work Agenda and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. At the end of the course, participants will be able to advocate for the centrality of employment and decent work in national SDG processes, at both the formulation stage and the implementation and monitoring stages. Decent work and productive employment are central to the new development agenda. Though most prominent in SDG 8 on Decent Work and Sustainable and Inclusive Growth, decent work is also referred to in many of the other new goals and targets. For example, it is directly and indirectly linked to SDG 1 (Poverty Eradication), SDG 4 (Education), SDG 5 (Gender Equality), SDG 9 (Industry Innovation and Infrastructure), SDG 10 (Non-discrimination), SDG 13 (Climate Action) and SDG 16 (Just and Peaceful Societies). In addition, participants will be able to explore the ILO's Decent Work 4 Sustainable Development Resource Platform (DW4SD). This is an interactive tool which provides guidance and support in positioning decent work in SDG processes at the national level. The various sessions of this course will cover the 2030 Agenda and 17 goals and their targets; the implementation of the SDGs through integration of decent work in national sustainable development policies and processes; SDG indicators and good practices in working on the DW-SD nexus; and resource mobilization within the 2030 Agenda framework.
