On 18 -22 March 2019, the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITC-ILO) is offering a course on Promoting a Just Transition to Low-carbon and Climate-resilient Development. This course seeks to strengthen institutional and individual capacities to support a just transition to environmentally sustainable economies and societies. Participants will acquire knowledge and tools to help them understand the sustainable development framework, in particular the link between environmental challenges and the world of work. It will focus on the ILO Guidelines for a Just Transition: a framework and practical tool for tackling the employment and social dimensions of sustainable development, climate change and other environmental challenges. The course is an opportunity to review concepts, global practices and national experiences, with the aim of understanding the main policy areas of the Guidelines and giving them practical effect at country, sector and local level.
The overall objective of this course is to strengthen institutional and individual capacities that can support a just transition to environmentally sustainable economies and societies.
Representatives of ministries of labour/employment and social partners, as well as government officials from other ministries (e.g. environment, planning, finance); national and international development agencies; climate change commissions, institutions and coalitions; environmental agencies; civil society organizations and academia.
