Through its distinctive rights-based development approach, the ILO contributes to building the resilience of nations and people caught in fragile and disaster situations. In direct collaboration with its member States, tripartite constituents, UN partners, international and national agencies, 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.
Stories from the field
The ILO provides direct support to governments and social partners in undertaking Post-Disaster Needs Assessments in the ‘Employment, Livelihoods and Social Protection’ sector.
Conflict affected states
The ILO works with the g7+ group to promote Decent Work in 20 conflict-affected countries, focusing on three broad areas of cooperation:
- job creation
- skills development
- social protection and social safety nets
