    Decent work for sustainable development

The Governing Body is invited to discuss how the ILO’s work supports the realization of those SDGs, with a view to the preparation of the ILO’s contribution to the HLPF discussion in July 2018 (see draft decision in paragraph 61).

  7. 332nd Session of the ILO Governing Body

    Reform of the United Nations: Implications for the ILO

    19 February 2018

    The reform of the United Nations development system (UNDS) is likely to have important implications for ILO activities at global, regional and country levels. Further to the decision taken at the 329th Session regarding the implementation of the 2016 Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review (QCPR) resolution, it is therefore proposed that the Governing Body discuss the UN Reform Agenda and most particularly the proposals for reform contained in the UN Secretary-General’s report “Repositioning the United Nations development system to deliver on the 2030 Agenda: our promise for dignity, prosperity and peace on a healthy planet” submitted on 20 December 2017. If adopted by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and the UN General Assembly, these proposals would require close consideration by the Governing Body. This paper summarizes the proposals and highlights some of the possible implications for the Organization. The actual scope and extent of the reform measures will become clearer only as intergovernmental negotiations advance over the coming months. The paper should be read in conjunction with the Secretary General’s report.
