More and Better Jobs in South Asia
AbstractThis report investigates how more and better jobs can be created in South Asia. It does so for two reasons. First, this region will contribute nearly 40 percent of the growth in the world’s working-age (15–64) population over the next several decades. It is important to determine what needs to be done to absorb them into employment at rising levels of labor productivity. Second, creating more productive jobs—with jobs defined to include all wage work and self employment— is the most reliable route out of poverty for a region that is home to more than 40 percent of the world’s absolute poor.
