Keeping the social dimension of climate change at the forefront of discussions is the focus of events being organized by the International Labour Organization (ILO) at the up-coming UN Climate Change Conference (COP27). Together with the European Commission, the ILO hosts the first ever Just Transition Pavilion, a convening space for events, meetings and knowledge sharing around just transition and climate action in cooperation with the UNFCCC, International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) and International Organisation of Employers (IOE). You can watch live – or replay – all events held in the Pavilion on this page. Please note all times are in Sharm-El-Sheikh local time (GMT+2, GVA+1).

Achieving a Just Transition through Article 6

Showing dates/times for
The Paris Agreement established a global carbon market (under Article 6) in which (developing) countries may sell certified emission reductions to (industrialized) countries. In theory, the idea should increase green investment in (developing) countries and contribute to sustainable development. However, evidence from the Clean Developing Mechanism (CDM) show that few countries in need benefited. How should a global market be designed to truly contribute to development and a Just Transition?
