Impact of climate change on the world of work

As global leaders gather in New York this week under the leadership of UN
Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to breathe new life into international efforts to
tackle climate change and other environmental issues, the International Labour
Office (ILO) is presenting a plan aimed at meeting the climate challenge in the
world of work.

ILO Director-General Juan Somavia explains the role of the ILO in this process
and outlines a new plan for a "Green Jobs Initiative” that will promote
environmentally sustainable development and make sure workplace issues are part
of the debate.
