by: International Labour Organization (ILO)

This research brief is a digest of the study Skills and Occupational Needs in Green Building (ILO, 2011), which resulted from a joint EC-ILO project on Knowledge sharing in early identification of skill needs. The project covered over 30 countries worldwide ? both developed and developing. It was supported by the EU Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity ? PROGRESS (2007-2013) and implemented in the framework of the Green Jobs Initiative ? a partnership between the ILO, UNEP, IOE and ITUC. The study draws on a number of country case studies and a survey of ILO constituents including governments, employers? and workers? organisations. The findings were validated through a focus group discussion and an experts workshop.
