Policy coherence initiative

Policy coherence for growth, employment and decent work

The ILO’s Policy Coherence Initiative (PCI) for growth, employment and Decent Work aims at assisting countries to formulate and adopt policy portfolios that support coherence between the objectives of economic growth and the generation of decent work for all. More coherent policy advice by international organizations is an essential element in developing more effective strategies. Elements of this approach are (a) better balance between objectives such as sustainable growth, equity, employment and Decent Work (b) more comprehensive policy mix and better sequencing to obtain these objectives, and (c) the creation of more policy space to implement national policy priorities.. The Department’s work involves analysis and policy development in support of more coherent policies and the promotion of policy dialogue within the multilateral system, including the International Financial Institutions.
