Expanding partnerships

In 2012 and 2013 the ILO worked on more than 800 joint activities with partners in addition to its tripartite constituency: multilateral organizations, private sector institutions and foundations, universities, research and knowledge centres, and civil society organizations.

This marks a significant increase in joint initiatives and partnerships that reach beyond mere financing and focus on the exchange of expertise, knowledge and research.

It is significant to highlight partnerships with the private sector, special  partners (including parliamentarians, academia, international non-governmental organizations, and faith-based organizations), with universities and research and knowledge centres, local governments, and city-to city cooperation in the framework of South-South and Triangular Cooperation.

The next sections show some examples of new partnerships.
