The Knowledge Centre in the ILO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific is a leading source of knowledge on the world of work and work-related issues in Asia and the Pacific. It serves as hub for information on established and emerging work issues, sustainable livelihoods, and the work-related aspects of economic and social development, technological change and human rights in the region.

ILO knowledge sharing in Asia-Pacific includes the ILO's knowledge strategy, an inventory of ILO activities and selected policies from other international organizations. It also contains a Knowledge Sharing Toolkit that gives details of key knowledge sharing concepts and methods, so allowing you to identify which techniques will work best for you.

Visitors from inside and outside the ILO are welcome to make use of the Centre's collection.
