Decent work and economic growth

United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (UNSDG) #8 focuses on promoting sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, along with full and productive employment and decent work for all. Envisioned as a critical driver for overall development, this goal addresses the need to create economies that generate meaningful employment opportunities, ensure decent working conditions, and foster entrepreneurship. UNSDG #8 emphasizes the importance of eradicating forced labor and child labor, promoting safe and secure working environments, and encouraging the formalization of informal employment sectors.The goal sets out specific targets, including achieving higher levels of productivity, promoting innovation, and ensuring equal access to economic opportunities. It recognizes the role of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in job creation and economic growth. Additionally, UNSDG #8 acknowledges the significance of protecting labor rights, ensuring equal pay for equal work, and providing social protection measures. By promoting sustainable economic practices and inclusive employment, the goal aims to build resilient societies, reduce poverty, and contribute to the overall well-being of individuals and communities worldwide.
