Eight out of ten of the world’s working poor live in rural areas where the lack of decent work opportunities is pervasive.

ITC-ILO training activities aim to better equip public and private stakeholders to promote decent work in order to support sustainable rural livelihoods, with a focus on protecting and empowering vulnerable people. A particular emphasis is placed on the promotion of local development approaches that connect public and private stakeholders and their resources in the search for better employment and a higher quality of life for both men and women.
