A growth-oriented economy challenges the inclusion of sustainability parameters, as the very elements that promote sustainability can appear incongruous with economic growth.

OPEN ACCESS. Transitioning to Decent Work and Economic Growth explores the prospects for SDG 8 in the Global South as well as the Global North.

Further, it examines how the institutional environment can facilitate economic change, which may lead to social empowerment and enhanced economic opportunities.
