Paris Climate Conference (COP 21)
In the wake of Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda), and as climate change exacerbates weather-related disasters around the globe, the ILO is working with local communities in the Philippines to make them more resilient to future storms. At the forthcoming Paris Climate Conference (COP 21), the ILO will advocate that the climate change and decent work agendas are mutually supportive.

Sustainable Development Goals
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.
With an average of 20 typhoons a year, the Philippines is the third most disaster-prone country in the world. In recent years, storms have been getting stronger and more deadly. Helping stricken communities build back better, the ILO has been especially active over recent years in the Philippines, including responses to Super Typhoon Haiyan, the Bohol earthquake, civil unrest in Zamboanga and Typhoons Washi and Bopha.
