Description:

2013 World Development Report on JobsThe 2013 World Development Report on Jobs stresses the role of strong private sector led growth in creating jobs and outlines how jobs that do the most for development can spur a virtuous cycle.

 

The report finds that poverty falls as people work their way out of hardship and as jobs empower women to invest more in their children. Efficiency increases as workers get better at what they do, as more productive jobs appear, and as less productive ones disappear. Societies flourish as jobs foster diversity and provide alternatives to conflict.

 

Urban Informal Workers: Representative Voice & Economic RightsThe Background Paper for this report was authored by WIEGO team members and partners: Urban Informal Workers: Representative Voice & Economic Rights.
