LIVE Discussion: August Goal of the Month – Decent Work and Economic Growth

As we reach the midpoint review of the 2030 Agenda, it is clear that multiple crises are placing tremendous pressure on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. According to the 2023 UN World Economic Situations and Prospect Report (WESP), growth momentum weakened in the United States, European Union, and other developed economies, causing rippling effects on the rest of the world. World output growth is projected to decelerate from an estimated 3.0 percent in 2022 to 1.9 percent in 2023, marking one of the lowest growth rates in recent decades. Growth in real GDP per capita went from an average annual rate of 1.8 percent from 2015 to 2019, to a sharp decline of 4.1 percent in 2020. While it slowly increased by 5.2 percent in 2022, it is estimated that growth in 2023 will still be slower, falling short of the SDG target of 7 percent.
