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).

Knowledge Hub: A Just Transition in India – Experiences and lessons for social justice

Monday, 14 November 2022 at 11:30 until 12:00 (Africa/Cairo)
Blue Zone COP27, Just Transition Pavilion, Sharm El-Sheikh
India, one of the fastest-growing economies worldwide, experiences significant vulnerability to climate change as well as challenges in transitioning to an environmentally sustainable economy and society. Declining employment in some sectors, growing job opportunities in others and socio-economic impacts on people highlight the need to manage the allocation of benefits, including through social protection linked to skills development and employment promotion, for a just transition in India.
