  10. Zimbabwe: Putting decent jobs at the centre of the economic development strategy

    10 September 2021

    This Labour Market Diagnostic Analysis (LMDA), presents findings of a study conducted by the Government of Zimbabwe through the Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare, with support from the International Labour Organization (ILO), and its tripartite constituents. The findings indicated that increasing living standards and promoting economic and social development in Zimbabwe would first require improving employment opportunities. Economies grow when more people work and when each job in the economy becomes more productive. At the same time, households escape poverty when labour income, the main source of income for most households, increases. This happens when more working-age household members are employed and when the quality of their jobs improves. Better employment opportunities for Zimbabwean workers are a key ingredient to the attainment of the upper middle-income status by 2030. The LMDA presents specific recommendations of sectors with potential for employment creation. This will ensure we achieve our set target of 760 000 jobs, as stated in the National Development Strategy and contribute towards the achievement of Vision 2030.
