Just Transition towards Environmentally Sustainable Economies

Pilot Application of Policy Guidelines on Just Transition towards Environmentally Sustainable Economies and Societies for All in the Philippines (Just Transition)

The pilot application of the Just Transition guidelines aims to enable the Philippine constituents - Government, workers and employers’ organizations – in leveraging the process of structural change towards a sustainable, low carbon, climate-resilient economy to create decent jobs on a significant scale and in a sustained and inclusive manner.

The project is in support of the recently passed Philippine Green Jobs Act or Republic Act 10771 and in view of the national goals as well as international commitments, such as the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and the Philippine's Nationally Determined Contributions to addressing climate change.

At the 102nd International Labour Conference, constituents adopted a resolution and a set of conclusions, concerning sustainable development, decent work and green jobs, recognizing the challenges and opportunities aforestated and putting forward a policy framework for a ‘Just Transition’. Subsequently, the policy Guidelines on Just Transition towards Environmentally Sustainable Economies and Societies for All was adopted by the ILO Governing Body in October 2015.

The Philippines is one of the three pilot countries for the application of the policy guidelines on “Just Transition towards Environmentally Sustainable Economies and Societies”. The other two countries are Ghana (Africa) and Uruguay (Latin America and the Caribbean).

Through a capacity-building approach, the project will support Philippine constituents in creating an enabling environment for sustainable enterprises to prosper and create decent work opportunities and establish interventions models showing integrated and effective measures at the industry, enterprise and local levels.

The pilot application has the following key outcomes:

Outcome 1:  Constituents create an enabling environment for sustainable enterprises to prosper and create decent work opportunities through ex ante assessments of the employment and socio-economic impacts of environmental policies to inform policy choices at macro and sectoral levels
  • Cooperation partnership and technical working group on Green Jobs established and functional, composed of key government agencies, social partners and key stakeholders and experts
  • Capacity of the Government and social partners is developed in measuring green jobs and analysing environmental, economic and labour market linkages
  • Conducted forums to share green jobs modelling and policy analysis results to facilitate integration of results into policy decision-making and development of relevant national frameworks, including the Philippine Green Jobs Act Implementing Rules and Regulations and National Green Jobs Human Resource Development Plan
  • Green Jobs advocacy strategies developed and implemented, including capacity building for Green Jobs ‘champions’ and development of knowledge products
Outcome 2: Constituents build intervention models for integrated and effective just transition measures at the industry, enterprise and local levels, where social partners, national and local authorities and other stakeholders will play key roles.
