Employment, Labour Markets and Youth Branch (EMPLAB)

EMPLAB supports governments, and workers’ and employers’ organisations to develop and implement gender-responsive employment and labour market policies with a focus on youth, in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

We work with member States to respond to their employment challenges and shape a better future of work by:
• Building their capacities on the design, delivery and monitoring of gender-sensitive, youth inclusive employment policies;
• Generating global knowledge and evidence through research, diagnostics and assessments;
• Strengthening their ability to design, delivery and monitor employment services and labour market programmes for effective labour market transitions;
• Mobilising resources and partnerships to scale up action and the impact of our work.
