How can we create 600 million decent jobs in the next decade and at the same time promote environmental sustainability?

During the upcoming Integration Segment, the United Nations Economic and Social Council and the International Labour Organization (ILO) will gather the international community to focus on this topic to ensure that decent and sustainable jobs are created for a better future for all.

More than 2 billion babies are projected to be born worldwide over the next 15 years. Countries that currently have the highest rates of child mortality are projected to have the largest increase in total births. Asia, Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean will experience fewer newborns. An increasing number of births poses particularly significant challenges for low-income countries striving to expand services for mothers and newborns, and greater efforts have to be undertaken to provide such services.
