Decent work: A universal goal

This review of ILO results in 2014-15 puts the spotlight on areas where the ILO has made a real difference to the lives of working women and men in all corners of the world, upholding social justice to address the concerns of its constituents, partners and Member States. The many stories highlighted here illustrate the human impact of the ILO’s work worldwide.


In 2014-15 the ILO delivered some USD 606 million under the regular budget, USD 430 million in extra-budgetary voluntary funding, and USD 32 million from voluntary core resources (RBSA). The share of domestic funding in total extra-budgetary voluntary funding increased from 3.8 per cent in 2012–13 to 5 per cent in 2014–15. The ILO achieved a delivery rate of 80.4 per cent in 2015.
