Representatives of governments and employers’ and workers’ organizations committed themselves to an Asian Decent Work Decade (ADWD) during the 14th Asian Regional Meeting of the International Labour Organization (2006) – reaffirming their dedication to the goal of full, productive and decent employment for all workers in Asia and the Pacific by 2015. The Asian Regional Meeting participants recognized that if young adults can achieve decent work early in their working lives through a smooth transition from school to work, they can avoid a vicious cycle of unemployment or underemployment, poor working conditions and social exclusion. To inspire constituents’ efforts and provide easy access to the rich knowledge, information and services that the ILO offers, the Regional Office in Bangkok developed the Asian Decent Work Decade Resource Kit. This booklet is one of six parts to that kit, serving as a gateway into ILO expertise and knowledge on the regional priority area of youth employment. It explains in a brief and user-friendly manner why this is a regional priority, the issues it addresses and how the ILO can help its social partners, detailing the available approaches, strategies and tools and possible partnerships. Where applicable, examples of good practices or adaptable projects are included.
