SDG 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth
The SDG 8 is a universal and urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – to promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all by 2030. The goal, being adopted in 2015 is a follow-up of the partially achieved millennium goals.
Among others, the goal includes the achievement of higher levels of economic productivity through diversification, technological upgrading and innovation, promotion of development-oriented policies, the improvement of global resource efficiency, and the achievement of full productive employment. The creativity, know-how, technology and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve SDG 8 in every context.
