UN News Centre, 2 November 2014: Citing “clear and growing” human influence on the climate system, a United Nations report issued today has warned that if left unchecked, climate change will increase the likelihood of severe, pervasive and irreversible impacts for people and ecosystems.
Devex, 27 Oct 2014 - In semi-arid regions across sub-Saharan Africa and Central Asia, development programs are often left at the mercy of climate change-related risks.
From October 6 to October 17, the Asia-Pacific Environment and Decent Work Specialist, Ms Lurraine Baybay Villacorta, participated in the Academy on the Green Economy organised in Turin, Italy. Ms Baybay Villacorta had the opportunity to take part in this knowledge fair, and present green jobs concepts, the role of financial system stakeholders, green infrastructure/works and green entrepreneurships. Ms Baybay Villacorta shared knowledge and experiences from the Asia and the Pacific region, while gaining insights from partners' experiences as well as foster collaboration in the work towards supporting constituents in the just transition to a green economy. Here, you will find resources Ms Baybay Villacorta presented. The ILO ICT has also launched an e-campus accessible via http://ecampus.itcilo.org/mod/page/view.php?id=1162.
The purpose of this report is to examine working conditions in the forestry sector in China and propose recommendations for actions to be taken by tripartite constituents in achieving decent work standards for a sustainable forestry industry. It serves as a background paper for the forthcoming workshop on decent work in China’s forestry industry in Beijing, China.
