Productive and Decent Work for Poverty Reduction


Employment is the main source of income for the working poor and their main route out of poverty. Jobs and income generating activities 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 employment for the working poor, including people in the informal economy and other vulnerable groups, is a fundamental requirement for inclusive economic development and poverty reduction and therefore a priority for Swedish development cooperation.
