What role has been given to the employment issue in the Post-2015 development agenda? During the process of adjusting the post-2015 development agenda, the issue of employment comes into prominence. Taking into account that employment-friendly policies have a lasting impact and can make a difference, the United Nations Development Group have launched series of e-discussions within Growth and Employment framework.The global discussions involving the experiences of various countries further will be conveyed to the global leaders to make their decisions on the post-2015 development agenda.

The Center for Economic Research contributed to the first of the series of E-discussions titled “Jobs and Livelihoods” within Growth and Employment framework with the examples of Uzbekistan. The chosen questions are as follows:

1) Most jobs will be generated by the private sector, especially small and micro enterprises. What policies can best stimulate entrepreneurial dynamism and connect increased productivity to improving employment conditions?

2) In addition to jobs, social protection is essential to provide protection to workers and their families, especially in the face of external shocks like the global economic crisis. What should be done to operationalize the idea of basic social protection floors at the country level?
