Indigenous peoples and climate change: from victims to change agents through decent work
ILO report says indigenous peoples are key to the success of policies combating climate change. A new ILO report, Indigenous Peoples and Climate Change: From Victims to Change Agents through Decent Work, explores why indigenous peoples are particularly vulnerable to climate change and what can be done to support them in their role as agents of change. It emphasizes the importance of the decent work agenda, including the ILO Convention No. 169 and Guidelines for a just transition, for empowering indigenous women and men, and ensuring that they can emerge as partners for achieving sustainable development and strong climate action.
