Green jobs, decent work and sustainable development

The paper highlights the origins of the Green Jobs Programme of the ILO, provides an update on developments at international and national levels, and shows how the ILO has responded to these developments in line with the strategic directions established by the Governing Body in 2007 and 2008. It seeks debate and guidance for the future development of the Programme at national and international levels, in particular on the role the Office and constituents could play in the forthcoming United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development and in the ongoing negotiations for a new international climate agreement.
