The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) have launched a stark assessment of the outlook for employment in the wake of the global financial crisis, saying that the world faces major challenges in creating enough quality jobs to sustain growth and development.

The assessment is contained in a discussion paper which is intended to launch debate at the IMF-ILO joint Conference on the Challenges of Growth, Employment and Social Cohesion in Oslo on September 13, 2010. The aim is to stimulate an active discussion of how international cooperation and policy innovation can address the urgent need to improve the capacity of economies to generate enough good jobs – decent work – to meet societies’ needs.
