The impact of the 3 Ds on G7 labour markets: key issues

This paper was prepared jointly by the ILO and OECD for the 1st G7 Employment Task Force meeting. The 3 Ds of Digitalisation, Decarbonisation and Demographic change are global trends driving shifts in the world of work. This paper identifies the key challenges and opportunities for employment and social policies of the 3Ds. It starts by highlighting the key issues arising from each of the 3Ds separately and then discusses the issues arising from the interactions of these closely intertwined trends.
