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.
