Tracking the SDGs in Canadian Cities: SDG 8
IISD’s SDG Indicator Portal tracks SDG progress in 13 cities across Canada.
The third brief in this series focuses on Sustainable Development Goal 8 (SDG 8), which aims to “promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all” (United Nations Economic and Social Council, 2017). The three primary components of this goal are to: improve employment and provide decent work and social protection for all; support green growth; and encourage sustainable tourism.
