Rio+20 - The three dimensions of sustainable development

"The Future We Want", the outcome document of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), proposes a comprehensive path toward sustainable development comprising three interrelated dimensions: environmental, economic and social. The Decent Work Agenda (DWA) is a key element of sustainable societies. ILO tripartite constituents have a critical role to play. Ahead of this conference, the ILO had placed emphasis on the same three dimensions, insisting on creating more and better employment opportunities with social protection, while enabling the transition to a green economy.
