Ministers, and workers’ and employers’ leaders from member States reflected on the previous days’ events and discussed the implementation of the ILO Centenary Declaration for the Future of Work in the context of the pandemic. The focus was on the urgent and immediate challenges of the early phase of the pandemic in the world of work and on the responses that were proving effective, as well as the process for building back better.
The discussion was guided by the following questions:
- COVID-19 responses to support full and productive employment and decent work for all
How will COVID-19 responses promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all? How can they be designed to lift the global economy quickly out of recession and put it on a course to navigate the challenges of just digital, demographic and environmental transition?
Do we want to accelerate the use of technologies to enable new ways of working in the light of the experience of pandemic? If so how should such work be regulated?
- COVID-19 – the first shock: Tackling informality and gaps in social protection
What needs to be done to address the massive vulnerabilities in the world of work made evident by the pandemic? How do we scale up the task of formalizing the informal economy and to move decisively towards universal social protection coverage?
- COVID-19: Spotlight on most impacted sectors of economic activity and vulnerable populations
What are the sectors of economic activity and categories of worker who require particular support and attention? Can the recovery process embody a transformative agenda for gender equality and a platform for the advancement of young people in the world of work?
- COVID-19: Working together to build back better
How can the reduction and elimination of poverty and imperatives of rights and social justice be placed as central objectives of the recovery process.
At a time when multilateral cooperation is more than ever indispensable, but facing unprecedented challenges, how can the international community come together with real common purpose and rededicate itself to the delivery of the UN 2030 Agenda?
