Job creation features prominently in national development strategies and it is globally accepted that without creating new jobs, it will not be possible to meet the first goal of the Sustainable Development Agenda – to end poverty in all its forms and everywhere by 2030.

However, do all jobs result in development? Does the quality of the job matter? Is the goal of Decent Work realistic for all countries? What is the role of governments, private sector, trade unions and civil society in making sure job creation does not result in poor-quality and vulnerable employment?

These are some of the questions that will be addressed during this panel debate.
