Future of work for climate resilience in the Pacific Islands
09 July 2019
This policy brief is part of the forthcoming ‘Just Transition for Climate Resilience in Asia-Pacific’ report. It outlines how the Pacific region could transform itself through job creation related to areas of climate change mitigation; if the local populations, especially younger people, are given the right skills and training.The Asia-Pacific region is developing its resilience in the face of increasing natural disasters and the changing climate. The challenges associated with transitioning to a lowcarbon economy, through which we seek to make our communities healthier, safer and even more resilient, can also provide new work opportunities. Making this transition suitably rich in green and decent jobs will help to ensure the wellbeing of people and communities, and the sustainability of our livelihoods and societies.
