Guidelines for a just transition towards environmentally sustainable economies and societies for all

The International Labour Organization's (ILO) Guidelines for a Just Transition to Environmentally Sustainable Economies and Societies for All provide an important pathway for ensuring gender equality and inclusiveness in a world of work disrupted by climate change impacts and climate mitigation actions that do not include pathways for decent work outcomes. They offer a policy framework as well as a practical tool to help countries manage the transition to a low-carbon economy in a gender-transformative way. They also provide a framework for leveraging women's leadership and power as change agents in developing, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating climate action.
