Beyond the emergencies of war, communal strife, natural disasters and pandemics, the issue of how people make their livelihood is fundamental to human well-being. Employment has been a major policy issue in the Pacific islands, Papua New Guinea and East Timor (the region) since these areas were first drawn into contact with international economic activity. Today the region faces employment challenges which, if not addressed, threaten economic development and social stability. This paper identifies issues impacting on employment growth in the region, possible barriers to employment growth and policy options to improve future employment opportunities.
