Skills for a greener future: A global view based on 32 country studies

Expanding on the ILO’s exploration of the likely job impacts by 2030 of keeping the rise in global temperature below the 2°C ceiling set by the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, this is the first global study to analyse the implications of the transition to low-carbon and resource-efficient economies for skills, gender and occupations (Based on 32 country studies). The main objectives of this global qualitative and quantitative analysis are to identify: the scale of the need for reskilling and upskilling to realize the employment potential of the transition to environmental sustainability (the “green transition”); changes in occupations, skills gaps and skills shortages in meeting the skills demand of the green transition; progress made since 2011 in the countries surveyed then in coordinating skills and environmental policy matters across ministries and between public and private sectors; the specific needs of vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in adjusting to change, and effective skills policy measures to increase productivity and support a just transition.
