    Rapid situational analysis of the employment-climate-environment nexus - Identifying just transition policies - Nigeria

    02 October 2020

    A “just transition” is about achieving decent work for all and eradicating poverty through growing inclusive economies that can meet the needs of the world’s growing population while also protecting the environment and natural resources on which life on earth depends. The greening of economies, enterprises and jobs must be seen in the context of sustainable development. The Guidelines for a just transition towards environmentally sustainable economies and societies for all adopted by the ILO Governing Body (ILO 2015) provide practical orientation to Governments and social partners on how to formulate, implement and monitor a just transition policy framework in accordance with national circumstances and priorities.
