ILO training courses will allow participants to contribute to the formulation and implementation of national policy for a transition to a greener, more sustainable economy. Although training is designed for a specific audience, the focus of these trainings remains on the social dimensions of relevant environmental and economic policies, including the workplace, enterprise development, incomes, poverty, and the labour market, especially employment and skills development. Trainings are usually directed to ILO constituents such as staff of Employers' Organizations and Trade Unions, and officials of Ministries of Labour.
