Thursday, October 19, 2017

COP meetings must prioritize discussions on the effect of climate change on employment.

International Labour Organization official Christina Martinez told the Climate Action Partners workshop group yesterday that there was a need to explore the values of climate change centred job creation.

Ms Martinez said there wasnt enough done to look at climate change job creation and decent work in the context of climate change.

The workshops, which are part of the PreCOP meetings in Nadi, are an effort to "tighten" the outcomes of the Climate Action Pacific Partnership Event which took place in Suva from July 3-4.

Ms Martinez said there was a need to form a working group which focused on the "nexus between job creation and employment" because there was not enough knowledge on the impact of climate change on jobs.
