The objective of the Sectoral Activities Programme, managed by the Sectoral Activities Department (SECTOR) is to facilitate the exchange of information between the ILO’s tripartite constituents on labour and social developments concerning particular economic sectors, complemented by practically–oriented research on topical sectoral issues and technical assistance to help solve labour problems. SECTOR also collects, analyses and disseminates technical sectoral information and carries out studies on issues of concern to particular sectors or groups of sectors. The ILO Library is the leading documentation centre on labour and social affairs in the world.
