The Government recognises that a just transition will support the creation of quality jobs in developing countries and enable enhanced climate mitigation. As such, the Government is working constructively towards a COP28 decision on the Just Transition Work Programme which catalyses increased climate ambition and underscores the importance of supporting workers and impacted communities. Trade Unions are engaged through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change process.
