At the launch of the Jobs Study, twenty-eight leading international finance institutions immediately pledged to work together to address the issue of job creation, and learn from each other’s experiences.
Working with key partners, the Let’s Work global partnership will help develop knowledge and practical approaches to the jobs agenda that would serve as a public good for the development community.
The Let’s Work partnership will prioritize, at the country and sector level, private sector focused activities with respect to jobs and will advance and refine methods for how to estimate job effects in this area.
Job related events are the most important reasons for escaping or falling into poverty, particularly in developing countries. Creating more and better private sector jobs is therefore an integral part of ending poverty.
