Targeting Exponential Changes by 2030 and beyond
Implementation of Macroeconomic policies
Taking Sustainability as a momentum for exponential change, and driven by a multilateral approach among international players and stakeholders, we lead countries for the effective implementation of macroeconomic policies improving the performance of the value chain to achieve sustainable outcomes, looking at the entire market system, designing and implementing interventions that will address the core constraints that affect the social and economic system as a whole.
Potential Growth Dividends
Global in-depth analysis of the key drivers of mothers' labour force participation indicates that closing labour market gaps would yield significant economic benefits in terms of GDP growth while at the same time would improve social development in multiple dimensions. We analyse and use labour market information and other indicators related to decent work, 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.
Multilateral approach among International Stakeholders
The lack of productive employment opportunities and the persistence of decent work deficits is a major obstacle to pursuing inclusive growth and sustainable development. National employment policies grounded in tripartite social dialogue and broad-based consultations with stakeholders can significantly contribute to implement the Agenda 2030 and in particular to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 8.

Analysing gender employment and labour underutilization as an important pillar of the new SDG indicator framework
The potential growth dividend from closing gender gaps in participation rates could be substantial. Reaching the target is projected to increase the annual growth by up to exponential levels.
— LABOUR MARKET PARTICIPATION RATES
Labour force participation rate, female-male ratio (Ratio of female to male shares). Ratio of female to male of proportion of a country’s working-age population (ages 15 and older) that engages in the labour market, either by working or actively looking for work, expressed as a percentage of the working-age population.
— GLOBAL COMPETITIVENESS INDEX
The report "assesses the ability of countries to provide high levels of prosperity to their citizens. This in turn depends on how productively a country uses available resources. Therefore, the Global Competitiveness Index measures the set of institutions, policies, and factors that set the sustainable current and medium-term levels of economic prosperity."
— SDG ACHIEVEMENT
While the SDGs are not legally binding, governments are expected to take ownership and establish national frameworks for the achievement of the 17 Goals. Countries have the primary responsibility for follow-up and review of the progress made in implementing the Goals, which will require quality, accessible and timely data collection. Regional follow-up and review will be based on national-level analyses and contribute to follow-up and review at the global level.
