The signing of the COP 21 agreements and ongoing dialogues at the COP 22 signal that vital solutions for adaptation and mitigation of climate change are underway. Many countries are focusing on transforming a cross-sectorial agenda of their economy, society and environment. New solutions are unfolding to frame commitments into realizable and doable actions on the ground.

Amidst this dynamism stimulated by COPs are questions on what policy contexts work in multiple levels and sectors to fully realize an equally dynamic skills development agenda. Making a transition to green economy, job and society begins with commitments, progresses through planning of actions plans and results in measurable outcomes. These are essential elements to achieve the goals of reducing emissions to reverse global warming. An inter-agency collaboration among UNESCO, ILO, ADB and French ministries called the Green Human Capital Platform agrees that in order to make transition successful, human capital needs to be an integral part of the process.  A well-managed transition starts with skilled and competent workforce who can take a full advantage of the job creation, social justice, ecological balance and poverty eradication potentials of the new climate change agenda.

UNESCO’s TVET Section leads a policy dialogue at the COP22 with the objective to:

  • Promote awareness on the multi-level policy contexts for driving skills development for the green transition;
  • Gather evidences of policy approaches and impact on developing new green human capital;
  • Launch new momentum for multiple TVET stakeholders to situate their roles in policy contextualization.

You are welcome to sit in and listen to the perspectives of key actors that have been identified as the movers of the  Priority Action Areas of the Global Action Programme on Education for Sustainable Development (GAP): policy actors, whole-institution approaches, educators, youth and local communities, as well as on water education and greening technical and vocational education (TVET) and skills.
