335th Session of the ILO Governing Body

Overview of relevant and existing forms of innovative finance mechanisms, related opportunities and risks, and potential for ILO engagement

This document is submitted in follow-up to the resolution concerning effective ILO development cooperation in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the International Labour Conference in 2018. In particular, it calls for the ILO to deepen, expand and diversify partnerships, including with other UN entities, international financial institutions (IFIs) and the private sector, and promote engagement with innovative finance modalities and multi-stakeholder networks and alliances, such as those tackling forced labour, child labour and modern forms of slavery.
