Over the last decade, most countries have improved levels of human development. But progress may be slowing as uncertainty intensifies globally. This report examines vulnerabilities that endanger human development, focusing especially on the poorest. Most threats are structural and persistent and linked with life cycle vulnerabilities. Identifying policy measures to reduce threats and increase human resilience is therefore a high priority. The report sets out synergistic proposals including universal public provisioning of basic services over the life cycle to maintain and strengthen human capabilities, full employment and social protection policies. It highlights collective action and international cooperation to address global vulnerabilities and ensure sustainable progress.

Book Description United Nations, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Thepublication explores how work can enhance human development, given that the world s workforce is changing rapidly, and even with progress, significant human development challenges still remain. It takes a broad view of going beyond jobs and examines the linkage between work and human development. Work is a critical tool for economic growth and security, poverty reduction and gender equality. It also enables full participation in society while affording people a sense of dignity and worth; for example, work that involves caring for others builds social cohesion and strengthens bonds within families and communities. Humans working together not only increase their material well-being, they also accumulate a wide body of knowledge that serves as the basis for cultures and civilizations. The benefits of environmental work extend through generations. The Report concludes that work enhances human development when policies are taken to expand productive, remunerative and satisfying work opportunities. Workers skills and potentials are enhanced, their well-being in terms of rights, safety and benefits are ensured when targeted interventions are taken, and an agenda action in terms of Decent Work, a new Social Contract and a Global Deal is pursued.
