South-South Cooperation and Decent Work: Good Practices

This South-South and triangular cooperation good practices collection focuses on solutions that illustrate the thorough involvement of ILO constituents and partners in realizing the four strategic objectives of the Organization. It has an informative as well as an inspirational value. It is aimed at expanding understanding of South-South and triangular cooperation at the global level by providing a sound basis for discussion. The aim of the results-based practices presented in this collection is to help governments and social partners develop and adapt initiatives to face the employment-related challenges. This publication is intended as inspiration for further initiatives to advance the Millennium Development Goals and other internationally agreed development goals, and to address the post-2015 development challenges.

  • South-South Cooperation for the implementation of gender-sensitive Social Protection Floors (SPFs) at country level;
  • Innovations in Public Employment Programmes (IPEP) at the ILO; Public Employment Programmes (PEPs); and Conditional Cash Transfers (CCTs);
  • South-South Cooperation between Panama, Nicaragua and Paraguay on water management and sanitation in indigenous and dispersed rural communities, with a gender perspective and an inter-cultural approach.
