International Labour Organization, 2011
by: International Labour Organization (ILO)

This policy brief draws the attention of policy-makers and social partners in both developed and developing countries to the role of skills development in facilitating the transition to a greener economy and seizing the employment opportunities that the transition entails. It arises out of the Green Jobs Initiative, a partnership between the ILO, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) and the International Organization of Employers (IOE). It draws on policy-applied research and numerous case studies of country experiences and good practice conducted in collaboration with the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) and the European Commission: ? Skills for green jobs, covering 21 countries, and ? Early identification of skill needs for the low carbon economy, covering more than 30 countries.
