331st Session of the ILO Governing Body

Partnership and Policy Coherence Strategy

In follow-up to the programme of work adopted by the Governing Body at its 329th Session (March 2017) to give effect to the resolution on advancing social justice through decent work, this paper proposes a possible strategy for promoting decent work through partnerships and policy coherence, with a special focus on promoting inclusive growth and decent work at the country level with international and regional economic financial institutions. If endorsed by the Governing Body, these proposals will be implemented as part of the ILO’s Strategic Plan for 2018–21, which highlights that partnerships and policy coherence are critical to the realization of the strategic vision for the ILO by 2021. They will also be implemented in conjunction with the Programme and Budget for 2018–19 and the Programme and Budget for 2020–21, and alongside the ILO’s Development Cooperation Strategy
