332nd Session of the ILO Governing Body

Decent work for sustainable development

This document surveys some existing challenges to sustainable development, how these affect the world of work and the resilience of societies and how the ILO is contributing to address them. It will provide the basis of the ILO’s input to the 2018 UN High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) discussion on the theme “transformation towards sustainable and resilient societies” and the selected Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Governing Body is invited to discuss how the ILO’s work supports the realization of those SDGs, with a view to the preparation of the ILO’s contribution to the HLPF discussion in July 2018 (see draft decision in paragraph 61).
