Breakout Session | Stage 3
Host: International Labour Organisation (ILO)
Decent work is not just a Goal, it is a driver of sustainable development. In order to achieve decent work for all and the broader 2030 Agenda, a just transition to sustainable development is fundamental. It will enable millions more people to overcome poverty and deliver improved livelihoods for this and future generations. With the right policies in place, just transition strategies would generate 24 million new jobs globally by 2030. Inaction will mean further temperature increases, causing heat stress, particularly in agriculture, more common and more job displacement with skills mismatches. During the Climate Action Summit of 2019, 46 countries made a commitment to formulate national plans for a just transition, placing decent work and a just transition for all at the centre of action to address climate change, and drawing on the ILO Guidelines for a Just Transition. The discussion will focus on experiences and policy priorities for formulating just transition strategies.
