Rishabh Kumar Dhir , ILO
A global shift to a low-carbon and sustainable economy presents several opportunities for achieving gender equality in the workplace, which is critical for achieving the SDGs and the Paris Agreement. This publication demonstrates how a just transition combined with inclusive climate action can play a significant role in changing gender norms and advancing gender equality, all while ensuring women have the opportunity to participate as actors in combating climate change, building a green economy, and creating green jobs.
