                                          UNDP – ILO ACTION PLAN 2007-2008

The UNDP and the ILO have agreed to step up their collaboration in the framework of UN reform. To that effect a joint meeting was held on 18
and 19 January 2007 between the ILO Director-General Juan Somavía and the UNDP Administrator Kemal Dervis and the regional directors of
both institutions. Both executive heads agreed that closer collaboration could only reinforce the role of each institution in giving effect to the July
2006 ECOSOC Ministerial Declaration calling on the whole multilateral system to mainstream full and productive employment and decent work
for all in their policies, programmes and activities. The meeting, held at UNDP New York on 18 and 19 January 2007 agreed on the following ten-
point programme of work for the 2007-08 period.

The agreed ten-point programme of collaboration is as follows:

   1. Collaboration in regions and in countries
   Detailed plans of action have been prepared in each region as expressed in the UNDP ILO Action Plan 2007-2008 matrix. The intent is to
   strengthen institutional collaboration between the two institutions in order to support more effectively national and international development

   2. Policy dialogue
   Strong policy advocacy is necessary to support effective development strategies. Policy advocacy must be built on solid analysis and empirical
   findings. Youth employment, social protection and poverty, and labour market regulations and poverty have been identified among the
   subjects for joint collaboration.

   3. Post-conflict employment creation, income generation and reintegration
   UNDP and ILO are co-leading an inter-agency task force that aims to produce a UN system-wide policy and operational guide for UN
   Resident Coordinators and country teams on measures to promote employment and reintegration in post-conflict situations.
26 June 2007                                                                                                                                      2

   4. UN System-wide Tool-kit on mainstreaming employment and decent work
   Tool-kit document is being submitted to the CEB in April 2007 for application, inter alia, in UNDAFs and UN country programmes.

   5. Knowledge sharing and collaboration
   In the context of UN reform and “Delivering as One” it is imperative that United Nations Resident Coordinators and country teams have
   access to the knowledge and expertise of non-resident agencies, including the ILO. UNDP will facilitate their access to the ILO‟s on-line
   information, and make it easier for UNDP and the ILO to share information, including information that is currently in their intranets. In
   addition UNDP will offer a “Google groups” platform for ILO-facilitated UN global knowledge networks and collaborative work spaces.

   6. Mutual learning and capacity-building for UN Resident Coordinators, UNDP country Directors and ILO
      country Directors
   Close collaboration is premised on solid mutual understanding. At the ILO International Training Centre in Turin, a mutual learning exercise
   is being carried out in April 2007 enabling Resident Coordinators, UNDP and ILO country directors to learn from each other‟s comparative
   advantages, knowledge and practices.

   7. MDG Achievement Fund
   The Government of Spain and UNDP are jointly managing the MDG Achievement Fund. ILO is providing lead technical support in the area of
   youth employment/migration.

   8. Enabling and empowering UN Resident Coordinators to become effective advocates of the Decent Work Agenda
   UNDP and ILO will collaborate to design and make available policy tools, information and knowledge on Decent Work, thereby enabling UN
   Resident Coordinators and country teams to be active supporters of the Decent Work Agenda.

   9. Strengthening institutional collaboration
   UNDP and ILO will strengthen their institutional collaboration through attendance at meetings, joint communication campaigns and exchange
   of best practices. The ILO Director-General was invited to address the Executive Board of UNDP and UNFPA on 22 January 2007. The

    UNDP Administrator will address the ILO African Regional Meting in Addis Ababa in April 2007. The ILO Regional Directors will
    participate in the UN Regional Directors‟ teams.

    10. Joint initiatives between the two executive heads of ILO and UNDP
    The two executive heads are agreed to collaborate in a series of joint initiatives around UN reform and effective inter-agency collaboration.
    The UNDP Administrator and the ILO Director-General signed a joint letter on 9 February 2007 addressed to all UN Resident Coordinators,
    UNDP and ILO country Directors to request their support in strengthening their collaboration in the context of UN reform.

    November 2006. A wide range of UN agencies as well as the BWIs

    RC/HCs and UN country teams on employment, income and
