A HUB FOR IDEAS, DEBATE AND RESOURCES ON HOW THE WORLD IS DOING ON INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT GOALS
'Health is a key component of ODI’s Development Progress project, enabling us to reflect on how far we have come in addressing basic health issues around the world and uncover hidden stories of progress.'
'Although in some areas there are still considerable gaps, overall the availability of data and, more importantly, the awareness that these data need to be used, have grown. It is important to use this potential this time around to get the metrics right.'
'Employment has become a burning issue in policy circles since the late 2000s... but it continues to come as an afterthought in economic strategies. A more comprehensive (people-centred) approach is urgently needed.'
'The jobs challenge does not end at home. The movement of people connects and affects different labour markets... It is time we consider migration as another piece in the jobs puzzle.'
'The fact that major international organisations and national policy-makers have failed to take strong measures to revert or counteract the trend of financial globalisation should not be an excuse for the WDR to ignore the strong influence of financial globalisation on jobs.'
'We cannot aim for growth in output alone and assume that jobs will follow suit.'
