COP 23

Summary of the meeting of Climate Action Partnership Working Group on Decent Work and Just Transition

Meeting document | 09 November 2017
One important outcome of the inaugural Climate Action Pacific Partnership (CAPP) event, which was held in July 2017 in Suva, Fiji, was to initiate a thematic working group with the mandate to foster positive interactions between climate action and the decent work and just transition agendas.

Following this recommendation from the CAPP, the WG held its first meeting during the Nadi (Fiji) CAPP Partnership Day (17 October) at the pre-COP23 event.The WG proposed an initial action plan for the Pacific Countries to take forward.

The Fiji Presidency and the ILO organised the second meeting of this working group (WG) as a side-event to the COP23 in the Fiji Pavilion on 7 November. The meeting was well attended and represented a solid start for this pioneer effort to reinforce the employment and social dimensions of climate action under the Paris Agreement.
