How Industrial Development Matters to the Well-Being of the Population (Report)

Published on: Monday, 03 Feb 2020

The report “How Industrial Development Matters to the Well-Being of the Population“ presents statistical evidence on how closely industrial development is linked to people’s living conditions and the quality of their lives. Countries’ development is often measured by their economic growth, defined in terms of rising levels of gross domestic product (GDP). However, GDP does not capture important quality of life elements as well as inequalities, which are essential for the assessment of any community’s well-being.

Furthermore, this report shows empirical evidence on how the achievement of SDG 9 is linked to meeting the other Goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda. Inclusive and sustainable industrialization drives sustained economic growth, the creation of decent jobs and income (SDG 8); it helps reduce poverty (SDG 1), hunger (SDG 2) and inequalities (SDG 5 and 10), while improving health and well-being (SDG 3), increasing resource and energy efficiency (SDG 6, 7, 11, 12) and reducing greenhouse gas and other polluting emissions, including from chemicals (SDG 13, 14, 15).
