The scope of PAGE work aims to put sustainability at the centre of economic policies and practices to advance towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. PAGE coordinates with countries to achieve and monitor the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In particular, the SDG 8 focus on promoting a sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. The SDG 8 highlights the need for decent and fulfilling jobs, protecting labour rights, putting a stop to modern slavery and child labour, all while creating jobs with access to banking and financial services and decoupling the economic growth from environmental degradation.
PAGE focus its support on the Inclusive Green Economy (IGE), that seeks sustainable options for national economies, using targeted, fiscal and social protection policies, safeguarding social and ecological aspects. The IGE has economical, health, security, social, and environmental benefits to nations. Through these principles and targeting the SDG 8, PAGE has promoted partnerships with several countries.
In this blog, we will look at some of PAGE’s work since its beginning regarding the SDG 8 advances in three regions: Africa, Asia and the Pacific and Latin America and the Caribbean.
