The Role of Employment in Promoting the Millenium Development Goals

By Siddiqur Rahman Osmani | United Nations Development Program, International Labour Organization | October 1, 2005

This paper was prepared under the joint ILO-UNDP program on ‘Promoting Employment for Poverty Reduction,' October 2005.

From the Introduction

"The present paper attempts to identify multiple pathways through which an employment-focussed development strategy can contribute towards speedier achievement of the U.N. Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In view of the importance of employment as a route out of poverty, the author explores the analytics of these pathways, theorising appropriate employment strategies as part of overall strategies for achieving individual MDGs, based on supporting evidence and trends from various countries."
