Financing Development through Decent Work

Monday 13 July 2015, 1:15 pm – 2:45 pm,  Elilly Discovery Hall, Addis Ababa


Full and productive employment and decent work for all constitutes a primary source of resources for development by generating a virtuous cycle of income which boosts consumption, spurs demand and increases rates of savings to finance development. The side event aims to stimulate a discussion on how decent work can help achieve sustainable development as well as the type of global partnership needed to make this a reality. The event will further elaborate on how employment and decent work can help generate fiscal space as well as how investments may be targeted to help spur demand, generate decent work and build social cohesion.
