The Employment Effects of Climate Change and Climate Change Responses: A Role for International Labour Standards?

— sector: Tourism, Agriculture, farming

This paper describes how International Labour Standards could be made more relevant to climate change in terms of its impact on employment and the labour market. It addresses the transition to a low carbon economy through a framework of policy coherence and good governance using International Labour Standards as guidelines for supporting not only the social dimension of sustainable development, but the economic and environmental ones as well. Two economic sectors, agriculture and tourism, will be looked at in particular and a special focus is put on workers and their social conditions throughout the transition.
