SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

In an era defined by globalization, technological advancement, and economic complexities, the pursuit of equitable economic development is more critical than ever. That is why the United Nations established its Sustainable Development Goal (UN SDG) 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth. Work on this SDG focuses on labor markets, entrepreneurship, and economic policies in pursuit of a more prosperous, inclusive, and sustainable global economy.
