  1. ILO at work : Africa

    22 May 2014

    Economic growth in sub-Saharan Africa has been robust for many years, with GDP growth averaging 5 per cent. However, it has not been inclusive and has not been matched by employment creation. Africa’s population is growing faster than anywhere else, and the pressure to provide decent work opportunities for new labour market entrants remains particularly acute. Over the past two years the ILO has given priority to promoting decent employment, particularly for youth. Greater attention is also given to respect for fundamental rights at work, the implementation of labour migration policies, skills in the rural sector and small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and making social protection floors a reality in Africa.
