The twin challenges of reducing poverty and creating employment

image of The twin challenges of reducing poverty and creating employment
This publication is based on papers presented at two Expert Group Meetings (jointly organized by DSPD and the ILO) that brought together specialists to undertake a review of progress in eradicating poverty and to analyse policy responses to the global jobs crisis in different countries and regions of the world. It calls for a reorientation of macroeconomic policies from the current heavy emphasis on short-term stability to the promotion of sustained, inclusive and equitable growth. It further stresses the need for the integration of social and economic policies to enable the attainment of people-centred development outcomes.
