Sustainable Development Goals

Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

Young people are disproportionately engaged in low-quality jobs with fewer opportunities for permanent employment. Moreover, two billion people globally are “unbanked” and lack access to formal financial services. When low-income workers and poor families gain access to basic financial services (e.g. savings, credit), they take the first step towards greater security. Simple and inexpensive technologies to support job searches and local banking could quickly improve many people’s opportunities for work and economic growth.
