During this year's GSSD Forum, hosted by the Government of the United Arab Emirates, and based on an assessment of past staff needs, the ILO will hold a South-South and Triangular Cooperation (SSTC) Solution Forum on The Future of Work and South-South and Triangular Cooperation, devoted to ILO staff and partners. The objectives include ensuring ILO staff and constituents can access tools and methodologies that will enable them to implement new South-South and triangular cooperation projects. ILO staff and constituents will be able to follow up on their learning experience of SSTC by exchanging experience and deepening knowledge through an ‘SSTC virtual meeting point’ (www.southsouthpoint.net) and by tailor-made coaching and training sessions. The ILO is organising its Future of Work dialogues around four Centenary Conversations: 1) Work and Society; 2) Decent Jobs for All; 3) The organization of work and production; 4) The Governance of Work. Participants are invited to concentrate on two of the dialogues. The event will also feature last year's Nobel Peace Prize winners, the "Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet", in a session entitled "Good Practice in Social Dialogue and Algerian SSTC cooperation". This will address social dialogue and social protection.

Public-private partnerships (PPPs) have played an important role in promoting decent work around the world for more than a decade, mobilizing resources, knowledge and expertise to aid the work of the Office. Since their inception, the number of partnerships has increased steadily, most rapidly in the past four years. The ILO continues to promote the development of PPPs as an effective and collaborative way of leveraging its values, principles and standards in today’s rapidly changing world of work. The tripartite nature of the ILO has been critically important in building such partnerships, particularly through its direct relationship with constituents in the private sector.

Their purchasing power fuels the growth and development of sustainable enterprises, especially smaller businesses, which in turn are able to hire more workers and improve their pay and conditions. It increases tax revenues for governments, who can then fund social measures to protect those who cannot find, or are unable to work.
