Duties and Responsibilities

The world is currently experiencing the Fourth Industrial Revolution, where Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and automation of activities are the key drivers of this revolution. This revolution will inevitably eliminate many current lines of work yet can bring in new lines of employment. ESCWA's Future of work initiative is expected to provide a forum for ESCWA countries to prepare for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (FIR) jobs while factoring in the number of jobs needed between now and the attainment of the 2030 Agenda. The key aim is to support member States for the upcoming change in employment and skills due to technological advancements. Ultimately, ESCWA will help member states harness job opportunities emerging from the advent of newer technologies while taming challenges.
ESCWA skills monitor is part of ESCWA's initiative on the Future of Work that uses Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to assess the demand for skills and jobs in the Arab region. Even though AI is very powerful, it still requires significant human intervention to be helpful.

This was evident, especially during unprecedented events such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
