Just transition: An essential pathway to achieving gender equality and social justice | UNFCCC

The paper aims to assist Parties, Non-Party stakeholders, and UNFCCC Subsidiary Bodies in clarifying how a just transition is critical to making climate action in the workplace gender-responsive. It emphasises the gendered dimension of the threats faced in the workplace as a result of the effects of climate change as well as climate policies that do not prioritise decent work, which is defined as "productive work [for women and men] in conditions of freedom, equity, security, and human dignity."
