What are Supporting Initiatives?

Supporting initiatives are initiatives undertaken by the Centre in support of the ILO’s global action programmes.

The following global action programmes are currently being implemented by the ILO:

  •  Seven Centenary Initiatives that transcend the policy outcomes of the ILO strategy framework and are meant to tackle topical issues relating to the world of work:
    • the Governance Initiative
    • the Standards Initiative
    • the Green Initiative
    • the Enterprises Initiative
    • the End of Poverty Initiative
    • the Women at Work initiative
    • the Future of Work Initiative
  • Five flagship programmes meant to demonstrate the capacity of the ILO to promote Decent Work through a combination of research, policy advice and capacity-building support:
    • Better Work
    • a revised International Programme on the Elimination of Child and Forced Labour
    • Occupational Safety and Health Global Action for Prevention
    • Jobs for Peace and Resilience
    • the Social Protection Floor


The Centre’s Supporting Initiatives focus on the dissemination of knowledge and the delivery of training and learning activities under the global action programmes, in close coordination with the Headquarters Units and field offices concerned.
