Annual Thematic Conference ATC 2014 "Reflections on MDG 1 “decent work for all”: Where Do We Stand?" - International Center for Development and Decent Work
In September 2013, the United Nations began to discuss the post MDG 2015 agenda. Global Sustainable Development Goals seems to be the new slogan. The emphasis in the field of employment is placed on social protection, skill training, better business climate (plus a move to large-scale sustainable agriculture) and most of all on growth. But will more skills and a better business climate really address the concerns of small-holders, land-less agricultural workers, and the great mass of urban dwellers in the informal economy? And what about care work? The following issues will be addressed: - Reasons for the failure to reach target 2 “decent work for all”. - Strategies that have or that might work to narrow the decent work gap. - A Post MDG 2015 Agenda for decent work and livelihoods with a particular emphasis on rural areas. - Reflections on the “development promise” implicit in the Post MDG debate.
