The International Training Centre of the ILO
While referring to the broad definition of sustainable development adopted by the United Nations, which postulates the intrinsic relations among economic, social and environmental well-being, SDP takes as a more concrete starting point the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Among the 17 SDGs, particular attention is devoted – from an ILO perspective – to goal 8, which aims to “Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all”. SDP is currently offering activities aligned to five areas of
expertise, linked in different ways to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 SDGs.
These areas are described in more detail in this brochure:
- Procurement Management,
- Programme and Project Cycle Management,
- Green Jobs,
- Decent Work and Sustainable Development,
- Multinational Enterprises and Global Supply Chains.
SDP designs and delivers courses in partnership with the ILO, UN sister agencies and key international institutions like the World Bank, regional development banks, universities, and inter-governmental organizations. Our training activities are currently delivered in English, French, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic. Many of them, particularly the short open courses and the Masters programmes, are delivered in Turin, but tailored activities and capacity-building projects are many times delivered in the respective partner’s country.
We also provide advisory services for public procurement reform at the legal, institutional and managerial levels, as well as assistance in designing, implementing and evaluating development projects and programmes.
