Just Transitions: the need for international rules based on local realities




As nations move ahead with efforts toward net-zero, protecting the human rights of workers and communities must be a central component of strategies to achieve truly “just” transitions for all.

This high-level dialogue will enable constructive exchange amongst key actors. The purpose is to further develop collective thinking and action around the necessary norms, standards, and safeguards for implementing just transitions strategies while ensuring consistency with international human rights and labour standards.

The meeting will result in a public report with recommendations that can be shared at COP27 in November 2022.
