Accelerating the achievement of the MDGs through Decent Work

Millennium Plaza Hotel
20 September, 2010
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The International Labour Organization (ILO) and Realizing Rights are convening a high-level policy dialogue to galvanize commitment to and stimulate collective action for achieving the MDGs by 2015. Particular focus will be given to the eradication of poverty through the creation of decent work and partnership development.

The forum will include other Heads of State and senior government representatives, UN agencies, top business executives, heads of workers organizations as well as civil society representatives, leading economists and academics.

The various stakeholders will discuss, in moderated interactive panels, policies which have been most effective at generating employment, ensuring social protection and creating conditions for the reduction of poverty. We will explore how the Decent Work Agenda can best contribute to attaining the MDGs for sustainable economic and social gains.

Our goal is to raise awareness of accomplishments and increase partnerships, particularly with the private sector, for the achievement of the MDGs. Additionally, we seek to announce partnerships with the private sector using the Decent Work agenda as a catalytic development tool to help achieve the full complement of MDGs.

This is a Side Event to MDG Summit 2010 - High-level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly
