Decision on the fifth item on the agenda: Decent Work and inclusive sustainable growth: Challenges for global policy

The Governing Body welcomed the Director-General’s decision to focus his Report to the 105th Session of the International Labour Conference in 2016 on the end to poverty and requested him to:

(a) follow closely the UN’s preparations for global follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda with a view to a potential ILO contribution on implementation of the decent work dimensions into integrated action on the 2030 Agenda and to support the proposed global thematic review process, in particular Sustainable Development Goal 8 on decent work and inclusive growth;

(b) develop further the Office’s support to member States and constituents as called for by the Governing Body at its 325th Session and assure the alignment of such work with the outcomes of the Programme and Budget for 2016–17;

(c) prepare a plan for the ILO’s role in assisting member States, where needed, to develop data production, collection and methodologies for the sustainable development indicators connected to the ILO’s mandate;

(d) report to the Governing Body at its 328th Session (November 2016) on the roll out of the Office’s 2030 Implementation Plan, including the further elaboration of the ILO’s Development Cooperation Strategy.
