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.
