Trade unions call on donor countries to put the fight against poverty and inequalities at the centre of its policies ahead of the OECD Development Assistance Committee’s High-Level Meeting (OECD DAC HLM) on 15 November 2023.

Trade unions urge DAC members to:

  • Act in favour of the implementation of a new social contract to accelerate action and progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly by supporting the UN Global Accelerator on Jobs and Social Protection for Just Transitions.
  • Mobilise and align financing with the SDGs and the Paris Agreement.
  • Reaffirm commitment to democratic participation and workers’ engagement through social dialogue.
