Labour and social trends in Indonesia 2012: Working for a sustainable and equitable economy

The fifth issue of the Labour and Social Trends in Indonesia analyses progress towards the goal of sustainable growth with equity. A key point here is ensuring that employment is sustainable in the short, medium and long term - which is intricately linked to the use of the environment and the decency of work.

Employment can also be used as a tool for achieving environmental objectives linked to the mitigation of and the adaption to climate change adaptation. We hope that the ILO’s concept of “green jobs” can be used to reduce the environmental impact of employment and be applied to support the achievement of greenhouse gas emissions targets.
