|Description:||Green and Decent Jobs - an Important Part of the SDGs|
This event will be organized by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety in cooperation with the German Embassy. As discussions on sustainable development goals and the post-2015 agenda are at a crucial stage, the first UNEA offers an opportunity to reflect on an essential foundation of sustainable development - green and decent employment. The transition towards a truly sustainable economy can be the driver of the generation of such jobs and thus strengthen sustainable livelihoods, whilst also stopping the loss of biodiversity, natural habitats and ecosystem services. Environment Ministers from the global North and South, together with UNEP and ILO, will discuss opportunities and prerequisites that a new universal set of global sustainable development goals can bring for the creation of green and decent jobs worldwide at this side event.
