Organised in collaboration with the Secretariat of the UNFCCC. In November 2015, the ILO adopted a set of guidelines for a just transition to environmentally sustainable economies and societies for all. These guidelines offer a framework for ensuring that national and global efforts to tackle climate change and other environmental challenges further employment creation goals, social justice and fair transitions for workers, enterprises and communities in an equitable manner. The course provides a review of concepts, global practices and country experiences with the objective of understanding the main policy areas of the just-transition framework and giving them practical effect at country, sector and local level.
