This event, organized by Fiji, in partnership with the International Labour Organization (ILO), convened on 7 November 2017 in Bonn, Germany, on the sidelines of COP 23. The event provided a platform to discuss interlinkages between acting on climate change and promoting job creation and social inclusion; and to share experiences on fostering a just transition of the workforce, focusing on the Pacific region.
Discussions centered on, inter alia: new employment opportunities related to climate action; the need to provide skills training and to revise education systems in order to prepare youth for green jobs; and the importance of specifically addressing decent work for women and youth.
IISD Reporting Services, through its ENB+ Meeting Coverage, has provided web coverage and a briefing note from each of the above ILO events.
