What is the Role of ILO in Climate Change Adaptation?

In early December, the International Labour Organization (ILO) released a working paper jointly produced by ILO’s Employment Intensive Investment Programme and the Green Jobs Programme. Towards an ILO Approach to Climate Change Adaptation explores the implications of climate change, its impacts on the world of work, and the role to be played by the ILO. This report is a detailed description of the relevant ongoing work, including the Decent Work Agenda, Green Jobs Programme and Skills for Green Jobs. It also discusses future strategies and priorities for the ILO and identifies three clusters which can serve as a basis for the integration of initiatives: 1) Local resource-based infrastructure, Social Protection, Income and Local Development, 2) Re-skilling, Social Protection and Active Labour Market Policies, and 3) Disaster Risk Reduction and Access to a Range of Financial Services.
