Linking jobs, poverty reduction, sustainable development vital for post-2015 agenda
With technological, demographic and financial factors impacting labour, two United Nations bodies met on 8 November to examine the future of employment and the need to ensure the post-2015 development agenda provides decent work for all.

The Second Committee (economic and financial matters) held a special joint meeting "The future of employment: The world of work in 2030," with the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) at United Nations Headquarters. The meeting featured presentations from the United Nations, Government and civil society experts covering such issues as identifying polices that adjust to the new realities of evolving labour markets, address the risk of growing inequalities among countries, and making sure the post-2015 development agenda reflects these trends and allows for appropriate follow-up.
