Sustainable Development

The Trade Union Development Cooperation Network (TUDCN) is an initiative of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) that aims at

  • bringing the trade union perspective and promoting the ILO’s Decent Work Agenda in development policy processes, including the 2030 Agenda;
  • improving the coordination and effectiveness of trade union development cooperation initiatives; and
  • building the capacity of trade union organisations.

The TUDCN interacts with key global institutions discussing development and development cooperation strategies, such as the United Nations, the Development Assistance Committee to the OECD (DAC), the Global Partnership for Effective Development Effectiveness (GPEDC) and the European Union.

The TUDCN brings together national trade union organisations affiliated to the ITUC, the ITUC regional organisations in Latin America and the Caribbean (TUCA), ITUC-Africa and ITUC-Asia Pacific , the Global Union Federations (GUFs), the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC), the Trade Union Advisory Committee to the OECD (TUAC) and trade unions’ solidarity support organisations (SSOs).
