Update: 10:20AM THE International Labour Organization (ILO) will call for greater emphasis to be placed on job creation during the United Nations Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Conference in Apia, Samoa from September 1 to 4.

During the conference, two ILO reports will be presented - Decent Work and Social Justice in Pacific Small Island Developing States Challenges, Opportunities and Policy Responses and Decent Work in Caribbean Small Island Developing States.

"The reports argue that decent employment, providing adequate livelihoods, social protection and respect for worker rights, is an essential element of environmental, social and economic sustainability," an ILO statement said.

Deputy director-general Gilbert Houngbo will head the ILO delegation.
