1.5 Skills development for sustainable livelihoods: Working Out of Poverty
We all know skills are essential to improve productivity, incomes and
access to employment opportunities. Yet a striking feature of most poverty
reduction strategies is the absence of vocational education and training –
even though the vast majority of working people living in poverty cannot afford
and have no access to training opportunities. The ILO is working with
its constituents and others to rethink human resource development policies.
In partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural
Organization (UNESCO), the ILO is making the connection between
education and the acquisition of skills for a productive working life. At the
same time, it is developing new strategies focused on the specific needs of
working people living in poverty. In this cause, public-private partnerships
are key to understanding the changing patterns of skills demands.

As the world's only tripartite multilateral agency, the ILO is dedicated to bringing decent work and livelihoods, job-related security and better living standards to the people of both poor and rich countries. It helps to attain those goals by promoting rights at work, encouraging opportunities for decent employment, enhancing social protection and strengthening dialogue on work-related issues. The ILO is the international meeting place for the world of work. We are the experts on work and employment and particularly on the critical role that these issues play in bringing about economic development and progress. At the heart of our mission is helping countries build the institutions that are the bulwarks of democracy and to help them become accountable to the people. The ILO formulates international labour standards in the form of Conventions and Recommendations setting minimum standards of basic labour rights: freedom of association, the right to organize, collective bargaining, abolition of forced labour, equality of opportunity and treatment and other standards addressing conditions across the entire spectrum of work-related issues.
