The UN chief said on Tuesday that shifting to a greener economy could also safeguard the 1.2 billion jobs that depend on a stable and healthy environment.
Noting that rising inequality hinders long-term growth, the secretary-general highlighted the importance of climate action, saying that "global climate action must be advanced in a manner that reduces inequality."
The UN chief called on the international community to "help people acquire 21st century skills as the world transitions from fossil fuels and boost investments in low-carbon, climate-resilient infrastructure that require these kinds of skills."
