The IDB and Job Creation: Report to the Summit of the Americas
AbstractThis publication examines job creation and the work of the IDB from two supporting policy perspectives: (i) policies and programs to improve the business climate and investment for private sector-driven growth; and, (ii) labor market policies and programs. For each of these two pillars, the publication examines overall policy frameworks and the links to job creation, and it reviews some of the IDB's contributions. The countries of Latin America and the Caribbean are now taking steps to expand job-creating investments and enact more effective public policies to support employment growth. This report is intended as a resource for policymakers, the private sector, workers and their representatives alike. It is our hope that it will inform the efforts of these stakeholders as they prepare for new commitments and initiatives in the context of the Summit process.
