|   News

Why does the global transition towards a low-carbon sustainable economy present several opportunities for achieving gender equality?

In a new publication, the International Labour Organization (ILO) highlights how a just transition with inclusive climate action can play a strong role in transforming gender norms and furthering gender equality, while ensuring women have the opportunity to participate as actors in combating climate change, building a green economy and generating green jobs. In this regards, a global transition towards a low-carbon and sustainable economy presents several opportunities for achieving gender equality in the world of work that is critical for realizing the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.

The publication "Gender, labour and a just transition towards environmentally sustainable economies and societies for all" is available here.
