Jobs, Growth and Shared Prosperity

October 09, 2014 | 19:30 ET, 23:30 GMT

Join us for a discussion on how we can achieve better results in creating more and better jobs, particularly for vulnerable groups such as women and youth. The panel will focus on the following four key questions:

What growth paths and economic transformations matter most for labor incomes and for higher labor productivity for the bottom 40 percent?

How should policymakers identify their countries’ most pressing jobs challenges?

What are the key components of successful jobs strategies in different contexts?

How can the international community best organize knowledge, technical assistance, advice, investments and interventions to tackle the jobs agenda?
