ILO-UNEP-IUCN joint report

Decent Work in Nature-based Solutions 2022

The first report in a biennial global series on work and employment in the emerging nature conservation and restoration economy

NbS are increasingly seen as a way to meet the objectives of several global agreements and can be central to a just transition – if the right mix of just transition policies are implemented. But there is currently no guarantee that NbS will generate decent work.

Co-developed by ILO, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), this report is the first in a joint global biennial report series that aims to fill knowledge and advocacy gaps on how transitions to a green economy will affect the world of work, and of the role that NbS can and do play in creating employment, especially for the poorest and most vulnerable people.
