ILC coverage: The issues surrounding climate change in Africa - the road to green jobs (in French)
The debate on global warming is gaining momentum in Africa.

However, couldn't climate change be for Africa an opportunity to get new impetus for development, rather than a major threat? In this interview, Peter Poschen, an ILO sustainable development specialist, ponders over this question and describes the "Green Jobs" initiative launched by the International Labour Organization.
