The Paris Agreement on climate change: Implications for the world of work

This event is jointly organized with the Geneva Environment Network on the occasion of the celebration of Earth Day 2016 and the Paris Agreement signing ceremony

The Paris Agreement on climate change adopted by 195 countries highlights “the imperative of a just transition of the workforce and the creation of decent work and quality jobs in accordance with nationally defined development priorities”.

The recognition that climate change and the promotion of job creation and social inclusion present interrelated challenges requiring coordinated responses places an important responsibility on the world of work to contribute to climate action in ways that promote both job creation and social justice.

This dialogue is convened under the framework of the Green Centenary Initiative on the occasion of Earth Day 2016, and coincides with the signing ceremony of the Paris Agreement. Its objective is to consider the implications of the Paris Agreement for the world of work and to discuss ways in which the ILO can support its constituents in the implementation of their commitments.
