Decent work for sustainable development

As requested by the Governing Body at its 326th Session, this paper summarizes recent developments within the United Nations system in relation to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, relevant discussions and decisions of the International Labour Conference, and progress in the roll-out of the Office 2030 Implementation Plan. It concludes that implementation of the 2030 Agenda through a broad range of ILO action under the End to Poverty Initiative is becoming an integral part of much of the ILO’s work and will require closer coordination with the UN and broader multilateral system. The paper should therefore be read in conjunction with Governing Body documents on the preview of the Programme and Budget proposals for 2018–19; the Strategic Plan for 2018–21; the follow-up to the resolution on Advancing Social Justice through Decent Work; the Agenda of International Labour Conference and the Follow-up to the ILO centenary initiatives (see the draft decision in paragraph 22).
