The ILO defines "decent work" as productive work in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity. It is generally based on the individual worker and the characteristics of the job.
There are also other ways to think about 'good jobs' - including which jobs might be 'good jobs for development'. Some jobs do more for development than others -- because they reduce poverty and inequality, strengthen production chains and clusters, or help build trust and shared values.
Ideally the same types of jobs would help on all three dimensions - raising incomes, productivity and social cohesion. This won't always be possible; some trade-offs may need to be made. And so being aware of what the trade-offs are is important.
