Employment - Creating More Productive and Decent Jobs
PORTFOLIO OVERVIEW 2015
Employment: Creating More Productive and Decent Jobs Employment is the main source of income for the working poor and their main route out of poverty. Jobs need to be productive, to generate incomes above the poverty level, and of quality, to protect the rights, dignity and safe working conditions of the employed. To create more productive and decent jobs for the working poor is a fundamental requirement for inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction and therefore a priority for Swedish development cooperation. Sida’s support to employment amounted to just over 1 billion SEK in 2015.
