The transition to a green economy is already having profound effects on the world of work. Changes in the way we produce and consume are altering the industries and skills that we need. New jobs are being created, while others are eliminated, adapted or substituted.
The creation of green, decent jobs is central to sustainable economic development as set out in the UN 2030 Agenda. The ILO’s Just Transition Guidelines offer a framework for countries to simultaneously promote social justice and tackle climate change. Through its tripartite structure and its global place in the world of work, the ILO is uniquely positioned to help countries respond to the double objective of the protection of the planet and the promotion of inclusive growth.

The round-table will take place in English.
