Climate Change, Its Consequences on Employment and Trade Union Action - A Training Manual for Workers and Trade Unions

United Nations Environment Programme (2008)

The purpose of this Manual is to enhance understanding of climate change and related mitigation and adaptation issues and their consequences on employment. Trade Unions are uniquely placed to sensitize workers about the impact of climate change on employment patterns, to promote and demand that both public and private sectors develop programmes on climate change mitigation and adaptation, as well as to train workers to contribute and verify that these measures are adequately implemented. In this regard, access to information and training are necessary to improve working conditions. The purpose of this Manual is to provide workers and trade unions with general information and guidance on how to deal with climate change.
