Nearly 2.2 billion people live below the US$2 a day poverty line.

470 million jobs are needed globally for new entrants to the labor market between 2016 and 2030.

Excerpts from United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to transform our world:

Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all

Roughly half the world’s population still lives on the equivalent of about US$2 a day.

And in too many places, having a job doesn’t guarantee the ability to escape from poverty.

The creation of quality jobs will remain a major challenge for almost all economies well beyond 2015.

Job opportunities and decent working conditions are also required for the whole working age population.

  • Global unemployment increased from 170 million in 2007 to nearly 202 million in 2012, of which about 75 million are young women and men.
  • Nearly 2.2 billion people live below the US$2 poverty line and that poverty eradication is only possible through stable and well-paid jobs.

470 million jobs are needed globally for new entrants to the labour market between 2016 and 2030.
