The Future of Work and South-South and Triangular Cooperation
The UN Office for South-South Cooperation, with more than 20 UN agencies and partners, is organizing the 8th Annual Forum on “South-South Cooperation: Enhancing Innovation towards Achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, hosted by the Zayed International Foundation for the Environment, on behalf of the Government of the United Arab Emirates in Dubai from 31 October to 3 November 2016.
The Centre and the ILO joined the Forum and they will lead the panel discussion on “The Future of Work, South-South and Triangular Cooperation”. In the context of its future of work centenary initiative, the ILO is grouping inputs in the initial stage of reflection into four “centenary conversations”. Each conversation will address a broad area of significance: (a) work and society; (b) decent work for all; (c) the organization of work and production; and (d) the governance of work.
From an ILO perspective, SSTC is a horizontal and solidarity-driven means to promote and implement the Decent Work Agenda in the context of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and its 17 Goals, in particular SDG 8 which has the objective to “promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all”, and SDG 17, which includes capacity building as one of its target to “enhance international support for implementing effective and targeted capacity building in developing countries to support national plans to implement all the Sustainable Development Goals, including through North-South, South-South Cooperation”.
