The answers derive from a wealth of experience in South-South cooperation and local economic and social development, and from encounters between the world of cities and the world of work. In 2012 United Cities and Local Governments and the International Labour Organization agreed to cooperate in the area of local economic and social development. The Memorandum of Understanding envisaged cooperation focused on “the contribution of cities and local governments to the promotion of decent work, in the LED context and in other contexts as may be agreed upon, through: the promotion of employment and sustainable enterprises; the promotion of social protection; the development of social dialogue; and the realization of fundamental principles and rights at work, especially the eradication of the worst forms of child labour”.
