Areas of Critical Importance (ACI)
An "ACI Community of Practice Development and Facilitation Training Workshop" will be held at the campus on 14-15 November 2013
In the Director-General’s programme and budget proposals, the ILO defined eight areas of critical importance for priority action in 2014/15. Each area combines work from across the ILO strategic framework. Areas are linked to outcomes and indicators against which results will be measured.

The "Knowledge Sharing Communities of Practice for the ILO Areas of Critical Importance" partnership project, between the ILO and the Turin Centre, is intended to support the launch of communities of practice for the areas of critical importance.
Its main objectives are to:
- Help community members address common challenges more effectively, both individually and collectively, promoting a collaborative approach to problem solving and leveraging the global knowledge of colleagues across the ILO towards advancing the ACIs;
- Serve as an effective way to collect, disseminate, reapply and create new knowledge;
- Promote the capacity development of ILO staff and constituents;
- Help set the agenda for the ACIs based on the experience of practitioners, and contribute to bridging the gap between policy and practice and between the field and headquarters by exchanging substantive feedback on policy matters.
