Building better: Evidence-based decent work policies and COVID-19 implications

The COVID-19 pandemic and its short- and long-term implications has turned the world of work upside down. In order to have human-centered approach to recovering and building better, there is a need for greater institutional capacity development of employers, workers and governments in dealing with labour market and employment challenges.

This training will provide constituents with solutions to tackle labour market challenges by using tools for promoting evidence-based policy making. These principal tools are primarily technical cooperation, research assistance, social dialogue, standards setting and capacity building (with various training methodologies).

The aim of this training is to build capacities of ILO’s tripartite constituents using case studies, research papers, guidelines, publicly available online ILO data, other data and information sources for robust and comprehensive policy making for labour market policies in a post-COVID-19 era.

This training is targeted to policy makers and policy influencers representing the trade unions and workers, employers representatives as well as government officials from various ministries.
