Making climate change socially just

This presentation was jointly prepared by the ILO and the OECD for the 1st G7 Employment Task Force meeting under the German presidency. It highlights the role of social protection in making climate change socially just, as it can address some negative effects of climate change, as well as the intended and unintended consequences of climate change response measures. After drawing on some country experiences, it gives policy considerations for G7 countries regarding how to ensure a socially just transition.
