UN secretary-general, António Guterres has showed his concern for the over 201 million people that will be jobless in 2017, with an additional 2.7 million people in 2018.

In his message to the commission for social development, Guttere said the world was currently going through a challenging period.


“This year, the number of jobless people is expected to exceed 201 million and another 2.7 million could be added to the unemployment rolls by 2018. Anxiety is mounting as societies cope with urbanisation, climate change, population growth and other mega trends. In this effort, we must give top priority to achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women,” he said.

Guttere further said the new UN agenda 2030, required a redefinition of traditional planning, monitoring and delivery of sustainable development objectives.
