Climate change and other forms of environmental degradation have negative impacts not only on ecosystems, but also on jobs and economies. In developing countries, vulnerable groups are likely to suffer the most from the changing weather patterns as they are more exposed to climate-related impacts and have less access to social and financial support, including social protection.
The Peer-to-Peer Learning Forum for African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries on ‘Promoting green jobs in agriculture to support climate change adaptation and mitigation’ is a tailor-made activity organized by the Investment Climate Reform facility (ICR facility) and the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITCILO) for government officials, practitioners and professionals of ACP countries involved in designing and implementing local, sectoral, national strategies for the transition to greener economies.
The objective of this Forum is to foster exchanges between participants on how to effectively design and implement green jobs and green works initiatives to transition to a greener and more resilient society, identifying good practices and discussing related challenges.
The Forum targets professionals involved in designing and implementing local, sectoral, and national strategies for the transition to greener economies and climate change adaptation.
The Forum specifically targets:
- Government officials operating at the local, provincial, national or regional;
- Business member organizations;
- ACP national or regional Development Finance Institutions (DFIs)
- Women’s organizations;
- EU Delegations
