Just Transition of informal workers and informal economy

Friday, 18 November 2022 at 13:30 until 14:30 (Africa/Cairo)
Blue Zone COP27, Just Transition Pavilion, Cairo

This side-event focuses on ensuring a just transition for informal workers in fossil fuel sectors and related industries, particularly in the Global South. As countries embark on the energy transition, a focus on a just transition for informal workers who lack skills and social protection is essential. The event is co-organised by the International Forum on Environment, Sustainable Development and Technology (iFOREST), and will discuss how to effectively protect and support informal workers during the energy transition, using India as an example.
