Sectoral Policies Department - Highlights 2014-15

The Sectoral Policies Department (SECTOR) provides support to ILO constituents in addressing employment and labour issues in specific economic and social sectors at the global, regional and national levels.

This brochure presents an overview of the results of SECTOR’s work in the past biennium. It is organized around the four means of action employed by the Department – consensus building; knowledge development and sharing; capacity development and technical cooperation, and policy coherence and partnerships – and includes a section on the results of the work carried out under the area of critical importance on the rural economy. Although the sections detail only a fraction of the accomplishments of the sectoral policies programme, they exemplify its results and the kind of work that could be built on and expanded to address current and emerging issues across sectors at all levels.
