Advancing work on adaptation to climate change: A UN system perspective - Policy Brief

— theme: Environment and climate
— country: Asia

The ILO's work on climate change adaptation is embedded in UN system efforts. The United Nations system, including the ILO, is committed to supporting Member States in responding to the climate change adaptation challenge by delivering as one at the global, regional and country levels on the basis of its convening, normative and advocacy role, its sectoral expertise, and its operational and coordination capabilities, in partnership with all relevant stakeholders. In order to strengthen the adaptive capacity of the poorest, the UN Policy Brief emphasizes employment in recovery from climate-related disasters, as well as the role of labour institutions, workers and employers in designing and implementing adaptation policies to climate change impacts and therefore in creating resilient economies and communities.
