Jobs Drive Development

An interview with Martin Rama

by Carl-Gustav Lindén
15 January 2013

Martin Rama from The World bank discusses the process behind the World Development Report 2013 on jobs, which he directed.

He emphasises jobs should not be seen as an afterthought of growth or mere inputs for production. Jobs are a condition of possibility for many development goals including functional cities, gender equality, peace building and much more. The focus for development work now should be in the creation of good quality jobs.

The interview was conducted by Carl-Gustav Lindén during the ReCom results meeting titled ‘Jobs- Aid at Work’ late 2012.
