    This handout can be used as a quick reference tool for addressing rural employment and decent work (RE&DW) issues. It outlines why RE&DW is so important for rural development, for achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and for contributing to FAO’s own work. Four brief checklists (one for each pillar of the Decent Work Agenda) are provided overleaf to guide FAO country offices when promoting RE&DW. Please refer to the Guidance on How to Address Rural Employment and De cent Work Concerns in FAO Country Activities for more detailed information, resources and tools.

    Promoting decent employment is essential to achieving food security and reducing poverty. Simply put, in order to be able to access food, poor people rely on the income from their labour, because it is often the only asset they have. This was explicitly acknowledged through the inclusion of target 1.B “Achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all, including women and young peopleâ€Â� in the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 1 to “Eradicate extreme poverty and hungerâ€Â�. However, policy responses have rarely addressed the employment and hunger challenges in a coordinated manner. There has been growing attention to the importance of employment, as seen in the United Nations (UN) system’s response to the global and financial crisis. In 2009, the UN agreed on a Global Jobs Pact to boost employment, production, investment and aggregate demand, and promote decent work for all. Moreover, the UN System Wide Action Plan of the Second UN Decade for the Eradication of P overty (2008-2017) set “full employment and decent work for allâ€Â� as a main theme. Likewise, a variety of initiatives have been taken to increase food and nutrition security of the most vulnerable, including increasing investment in agriculture, addressing food prices increases, and reducing producers’ and consumers’ vulnerability to food price shocks and to the effects of climate change. And yet, those initiatives have rarely taken up explicit employment objectives.
