Just Transition Policy briefs

The Just Transition Policy Brief series seeks to deepen the technical and policy understanding of the application of the Guidelines for a Just Transition towards Environmentally Sustainable Economies and Societies for All adopted by representatives of governments, employers’ and workers’ organizations in 2015. They are mutually reinforcing and together form a body of policy guidance on Just Transition.

Intended for use by policymakers and practitioners, including workers’ organizations, employers’ organizations, and governments members in relevant line ministries, the briefs foster a common understanding of what is meant by a just transition in specific topic areas and providing recommendations for implementation by countries, international institutions and other actors in academia and civil society.

The briefs, listed below, cover the following thematic areas: macro-economic and growth policies; industrial and sectoral policies; active labour market policies; enterprise policies; skills development; green works; occupational safety and health; social protection; rights; social dialogue and tripartism; collective bargaining; labour migration and human mobility; indigenous peoples; gender and labour; youth employment; persons with disabilities; persons with HIV/AIDS; and financing a just transition.
