Sustainable Development Goals

Goal 8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth

Sustainable and inclusive economic progress is necessary to achieve sustainable development. Progress and the world toward achieving SDG 8 are more difficult than most goals. The ongoing effects of COVID-19, combined with crises such as cost of living, trade tensions, uncertain monetary policy paths, and rising debt in developing countries, put the global economy under serious threat. Achieving SDG 8 will require wholesale reform to deal with debts, economic uncertainties, trade tensions, and more.
