SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CASES
2030 National Targets
Gender Parity Strategies
We agree on the G20 Ministers of Labour leadership commitment to reduce the gender gap in labour force participation, on the setting and implementation of key policy principles to improve the quality of mother's employment. Our economic case to ensure the full participation of mothers in the labour market, targets exponential changes within countries by 2030.
Decent Work Mechanisms
Our Policy implementation supports the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted in 2015, especially SDG8 on inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all, which seeks to address gender inequalities at work.
We analyse and use labour market information and other indicators emphasizing the 19th ICLS resolution on statistics of work, employment and labour underutilization as an important pillar of the new SDG indicator framework, not only for targets in Goal 8 but also in other Goals related to the sustainable agenda.
