The International Labour Conference adopts landmark instruments on violence and harassment and a Declaration on the future of work. The Conference concluded its two-week session, which marked the centenary of the ILO.
Artisanal and small-scale gold mining
With the growing global movement to support just transition and formalization of artisanal and small-scale gold mines, the ILO brought together experts and global actors to address child labour and poor working conditions in an inter-regional meeting held in the Philippines.
The Philippines declared 2019 as the ILO Centenary and reaffirmed its full support to, and cooperation with the ILO’s mandate of promoting peace and social justice.
The ILO in the Philippines
With an average of 20 typhoons a year, the Philippines is the third most disaster-prone country in the world. In recent years, storms have been getting stronger and more deadly. Helping stricken communities build back better, the ILO has been especially active over recent years in the Philippines, including responses to Super Typhoon Haiyan, the Bohol earthquake, civil unrest in Zamboanga and Typhoons Washi and Bopha.
