The objective of this project is:
to build the capacity of public services unions to be involved in environment policy discussions with governments and push for environmental policy becoming a tripartite issue;
to contribute to public sector trade unions’ technical and organisational capacities to engage in effective social dialogue for policy development on climate change mitigation and adaptation and to promote a just and green transition to sustainable development;
to produce a toolkit that helps public sector trade union leadership analyse and monitor national climate change actions, and gain an understanding of the linkages between labour and environment challenges.
The beneficiaries are:
Trade union leadership, Education officers, women representatives, young worker representatives and other union officers are direct beneficiaries
Users of public services and un-organised workers are indirect beneficiaries.
