Ms Marina Walter, UN Resident Coordinator for Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname, Aruba, Curacao and St. Maarten, delivers remarks at the International Labour Organization (ILO) Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP) meeting in Paramaribo. During the event tripartite constituents (government, employer organizations and worker organizations) will review Suriname’s DWCP, which is currently in development, and discuss the next steps towards finalization and approval.
Decent Work Country Programmes have been established as the main vehicle for delivery of ILO support to countries and they have two basic objectives: (1) to promote decent work as a key component of national development strategies. (2) to organise ILO knowledge, instruments, advocacy and cooperation at the service of tripartite constituents in a results-based framework to advance the decent work agenda.
The quest for decent work for all men and women, for productive, high-quality employment and for inclusive labour markets is encompassed in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development under Goal 8, but it is also seen as a cross-cutting topic, underlying other goals as well and intertwined with many targets across the 2030 Agenda.
