SDG8 - Decent Work

SDG8 - Decent Work

  Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.*

*The London Poverty Research does not recognize economic growth as a sustainable development goal. Our findings, based on both local and international research and expertise, show that sustained economic growth is in direct opposition with the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda. For more information on this topic, please read our 2020 report on Localizing the SDGs.
