  • Global unemployment projected to rise in both 2016 and 2017

    Despite falling unemployment levels in some developed economies, new analysis shows the global job crisis is not likely to end, especially in emerging economies.

  • Women's livelihoods

    The ILO has set up weaving centres in one of Pakistan’s poorest provinces to boost the quality of the products, and improve skills and income of the weavers.

  • Decent work and the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development

    Putting job creation at the heart of economic policy-making and development plans, will not only generate decent work opportunities but also more robust, inclusive and poverty-reducing growth. It is a virtuous circle that is as good for the economy as it is for people and one that drives sustainable development.
