Technology and SDG 8 – Decent Work, Economic Growth

Introduction and definition of SDG 8:

SDG 8 promotes sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
Between 2014 and 2018 average economic growth was around 2%, slowing to 1.3% in 2019 then going in reverse during 2020 due to the pandemic.
This goal contributes to and is supported by several other goals, including gender equality (SDG 5), quality education (SDG 4), no poverty (SDG 1) and zero hunger (SDG2). Innovation, consumption, industry and many others are also linked, one way or another.
