This session is organised by the Global Deal partner International Trade Centre (ITC). Speakers will discuss the role that social dialogue can play to enhance decent work, address the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, and build back a better and more inclusive labour market. The session will also serve to present the work in progress under a multi-year programme funded by European Union to promote decent work and advance transparency of sustainable value chains in the garment and footwear sector. It will highlight the main lessons learned to date applicable to “building back better” after the COVID-19 pandemic. Practical tools and methodologies will be presented and all interested stakeholders will be invited to join an active debate. This session will have interpretation available in English and French.
