A Just Transition is a way towards a green economy and sustainable development that will create green jobs, support climate action and help combat social injustice. The Pacific islands region is an economically and culturally diverse area, sharing similar challenges and opportunities. On average, the population is growing and 62 per cent of the population is of legal working age (15-64 years). The majority of employment is in services while agriculture has a relatively low.
