Background and RationaleThe InSIGHT Project aims to promote mechanisms and practical approaches that will enable industries and workplaces to become drivers of sustainable and inclusive growth in the Asian region.
With the commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the anticipated growth and consolidation in the ASEAN region, efforts to fully engage ILO’s tripartite partners in the regional discourse, agreements and actions most relevant to them, are pivotal. The project is expected to foster a broad-based understanding of the implications and challenges created by economic growth, the environment, and the need for social inclusion, in the context of decent work.
With the support from the Government of Japan, the InSIGHT Project will be working at both regional and national level from 2015 -2018. It will cover activities in the ASEAN region, initiating national level interventions in Indonesia, as it also prepares to replicate the experience in other countries in Asia.
The project will expand the work carried out under previous ILO/Japan projects, such as Greener Business Asia (GBA in Thailand and the Philippines), the ASEAN-ILO/Japan Project on Industrial Relations (AIJPIR), and the ILO/Japan on Occupational Safety and Health in Hazardous Work in Southeast Asia (OSH) Project. The InSIGHT Project is part of the global ILO Green Jobs Initiative, and is a significant addition to the Green Jobs and Sustainable Enterprise portfolio of ILO activities in the Asia-Pacific region.
