"Over the next five years, 90%of jobs will be created in emerging and developing countries" says ILO

"Over the next five years, 90%of jobs will be created in emerging and developing countries" says ILO | Kristian Geography Log | Scoop.it

The 2014 edition of the ILO  World of Work discusses the importance of job quality amid somewhat positive global employment developments. Reflecting a smaller increase than previous projections, global unemployment stood at just under 200 million in 2013 and is expected to rise by 3.2 million in 2014. By 2019, given current trends and policies, unemployment will reach 213 million. Global joblessness is projected to remain broadly at the current level of 6 per cent until 2017.

The highest unemployment rates, in North Africa and the Middle East, are expected to remain at 12.3 and 11.1 per cent in 2014. The largest increase in 2014 is estimated for Central and South-Eastern Europe and former Soviet bloc countries, where unemployment will reach 8.3 per cent in 2014.

Over the next five years, 90 per cent of jobs will be created in emerging and developing countries. This is expected to have a significant impact on migration flows.

“Migration patterns look set to change as emerging and developing countries make further progress in improving the quality of jobs,“ said Mahmood. “Already, South-South migration is on the rise while workers are also leaving advanced economies, particularly some hard-hit European countries, for work opportunities in developing countries.”

Another factor, migration will heavily affect population increase and patterns.

The oceans cover 70% of Earth's surface, and are almost entirely unexplored.
Kristian Batinic's insight:

i find this article intresting and funny how they've only presumed that underwater volcanoes must be efussive or eruptive.but they have now found out that a foam like substance comes out of it which is inbetween eruptive and enfussive types.
