Mainstreaming decent work
Toolkit for Mainstreaming Employment and Decent Work
The Toolkit was developed to assist UN agencies, as well as governments and social partners, respond to the international mandate of promoting decent work and help them integrate and improve decent work outcomes in their own policies and programmes.
Two self-assessment checklists set out questions that every organization can ask itself to assess and refine its policies, strategies and programmes in order to reach its objectives by drawing on the values of decent work.
An interactive platform has been developed for knowledge management and sharing. It comprises practical and knowledge-based tools. It also includes good practices from different countries and regions. Users can provide feedback, identify knowledge gaps, set up discussion fora for collaboration and post their own tools.
The ILO has provided a range of training activities as part of the Toolkit implementation to strengthen knowledge of the Decent Work Agenda, drawing on the technical expertise from various departments and staff in the field.
The Toolkit has been adapted to be used at country level to assist UN Country Teams, national constituents and stakeholders, and other development partners to mainstream employment and decent work in national development frameworks. A checklist for use specifically at country-level was developed.
