Samoa Observer, 3rd November 2018

The International Labour Organisation (I.L.O.) will be furthering its relationship with Samoa by providing technical help and training with careers in climate change.

A memorandum of understanding (M.O.U.) was signed last week between I.L.O. and the Ministries of commerce, immigration and labour (M.C.I.L), and natural resources and environment (M.N.R.E.).

The M.O.U. solidified that the three parties would work closely together on health and safety and the development of “green jobs” across Samoa, through the continued work on the Vaisigano River catchment.

Work to reduce runoff during extreme weather events has been ongoing, and I.L.O. will provide occupational health and safety training and create pathways to medium and long-term jobs within the environment sector.

I.L.O. Director for the Pacific region, Donglin Li signed the M.O.U. alongside Chief Executive Officer of M.C.I.L., Pulotu Lyndon Chu Ling and acting Chief Executive Officer for M.N.R.E, Toleafoa Fetoloai Yandall-Alama.
