I. Introduction : Background and Context
The International Labour Organization (ILO) advances opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity.
The ILO promotes rights at work, encourages decent employment opportunities, enhances social protection and strengthens dialogue in handling work-
related issues. The ILO Country Office for the Philippines supports the country’s goal of achieving sustainable, inclusive and greener growth through decent and productive work.
To perform its role and enable better understanding of the world of work, the ILO requires timely and focused information on the labour market as well as on the economy in general.
The appropriate use of available statistics for comprehensive analysis is essential to formulate effective labor and employment policies and programmes.
This is particularly important in the Philippines, where President Aquino has emphasized his administration’s goal of fostering an environment that will create decent jobs for Filipinos.
Moreover, the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) has initiated preparations and consultations towards the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) 2012-
2018. Under the UNDAF, one of the four major outcome areas includes Decent and productive employment for sustained, greener growth .
This is jointly chaired by ILO CO-Manila and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and is supported by both agencies through provision of technical inputs, including in preparation of work plans and progress reports.
