End poverty in all its forms everywhere

WHERE DECENT WORK COMES IN

ILO research shows it would cost $US 10 trillion to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030. But that can’t be accomplished sustainably without more and better jobs.

WHERE DECENT WORK COMES IN

ILO recommendations on labour and social policies help to drive sustainable development by putting more women and men in decent jobs. That’s a crucial step towards the goal of reducing the number of people living in poverty by half before 2030.

WHERE DECENT WORK COMES IN

Less than one third of the world’s population has adequate social security coverage and more than half lack any coverage at all. The ILO helps countries improve and extend their social protection programmes with the goal of expanding the right of universal coverage to all by 2030.

WHERE DECENT WORK COMES IN

The ILO works in countries around the globe to help families in poor communities gain access to financial services like insurance and microcredit.

The ILO supports an employment-centred recovery from conflict, turmoil and disasters while promoting decent work and social justice as key drivers of social cohesion and the prevention of further conflict.

The ILO works to promote decent work opportunities and a social protection floor for all women and men so that no one is left behind and everyone has the right to sustain themselves, their families and aspire to a better future.
