SDG 8: Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all by 2030
WHY IT MATTERS
Economic growth should be a positive force for the whole planet - driving progress, creating decent jobs for all and improving living standards. However, having a job does not guarantee a decent living. In fact, according to the United Nations, 8 per cent of employed workers and their families worldwide lived in extreme poverty in 2018. We must protect labour rights and increase access to financial services to manage incomes, accumulate assets and make productive investments.
