PAGE Hosts National Dialogue on Just Transition in Argentina

PAGE Argentina hosted a high-level virtual event with representatives from the Argentine government and labor sector on 15 December. The political meeting gathered individuals from the Ministry of Labor, Employment and Social Security, the Ministry of Productive Development; and the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development, the Argentine Industrial Union (UIA) and the General Labor Confederation (CGT) to discuss inclusive green economy, a just transition and green jobs in Argentina. 

The event was followed by two virtual technical dialogues led by UNDP on 16 and 17 December, the first jointly with PAMPA 2030, the mechanism of trade unions embedded in the national SDG process, and the second with the UN Global Compact.   

The tripartite dialogue, overall, presented an opportunity to strengthen coordination amongst Ministries on policies for a Just Transition, using social dialogue as a means to increase momentum on sustainable and inclusive outcomes — including discussions of The Green New Deal and workshops for awareness-raising. Similar dialogues are expected to be planned for the coming years to strengthen a national roadmap for inclusive green economy priorities.
