Regional Dialogue on Green Growth for Jobs and Social Inclusion: Making the case for a just transition in Asia

The International Labour Organization Country Office for the Philippines (ILO CO-Manila), the Green Jobs Programme, and the International Training Centre (ITC)of the ILO are organizing a regional dialogue on "Green Growth for Jobs and Social Inclusion: Making the case for a just transition in Asia".

This is a follow-up to the adoption of the ILO policy guidelines for a “Just transition towards environmentally sustainable economies and societies for all”, which offer the ILO and its constituents a framework and a practical tool to help countries manage the transition to greener economies, in line with their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and Sustainable Development Goals.

The regional dialogue, which will gather tripartite delegates from the Philippines and other Asian countries, aims to achieve the following:
  • Improved understanding among constituents regarding the facts and trends on climate change and green growth;
  • Enhanced knowledge among constituents of approaches towards policy development, programme and project development, financing green development, as well as engaging the social partners in support of a just transition and climate change adaptation; and
  • Strengthened collaboration and networking among constituents within and across the countries and region.
