Background In the shift towards a green economy, in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication, new initiatives and emerging approaches can be boosted to jointly address environmental and social challenges through well-informed policies.

This cannot happen without a thorough understanding and analysis of the implications that the transition to resource-effi cient, low emission and climate-resilient economies poses for the labour markets, including the identifi cation of changes that enterprises and workers will have to face, the anticipation of skill needs and the role of governments and social partners in crafting enabling policies and regulatory frameworks.

Socially inclusive development requires decent jobs, which provide adequate incomes, social protection and respect for the rights of workers. The promotion of decent jobs in the green economy reconciles and drives viable economic growth, secures a sustainable environment and harnesses social equity.

This course tackles challenges and opportunities in the promotion of green jobs, by providing participants with the needed knowledge and tools to assess potentialities, device appropriate policies, discuss investments and technology options, implement strategies, monitor and evaluate progress towards a greener economy.

Special attention will be given to the assessment of employment potential and the analysis of skill needs , through sectoral, cross-sector and country analysis in view of informing national policy initiatives.
