Group of Friends of Decent Work for Sustainable Development

Terms of Reference

Decent work has emerged as a core issue in the discussions related to the post-2015 sustainable development agenda. The Rio+20 outcome document “The Future We Want” recognized the need to create an enabling environment for full employment, decent work for all and social protection. It urged all governments to address the global challenge of youth employment, adopt forward-looking macroeconomic policies and work to promote the transition to formality, gender equality and social protection floors. This message was further strengthened in the 2012 ECOSOC Annual Ministerial Declaration.
