Tip: the discussion should first establish the factual basis and then consider the actual implementation of the respective policies and actions.
- Does the national programming framework explicitly address issues related to climate change, environmental sustainability, and the greening of the national economy, including from a gender perspective?
- Does government assess the job destruction and job creation potentials of these measures, including on traditional livelihoods of indigenous and tribal peoples?
- Does government adopt regulations, offer incentives, or otherwise implement strategies to make production and consumption more sustainable (in terms of energy consumption, resource depletion, emissions etc.)?
- Does the national labour law and the labour inspection system take into account environment-related effects on the workplace environment, including occupational safety and health conditions?
- Does government conduct environmental impact assessments, for example when deciding on investments or evaluating a programme, including on lands traditionally occupied by indigenous and tribal people?
- Does government implement programmes to assist affected communities to adapt to climate change?
- Does government promote “green jobs” (as defined in this section)?
- Are the social partners actively involved in the design, implementation and monitoring of measures designed to enhance the environmental sustainability of the national economy?
- Does the community of development partners, including the UN system, support the government’s efforts to make the national economy more environmentally sustainable?
