AFD published a Trinomics report on facilitating green skills and jobs in developing countries. Green growth and green economy policies in developing countries have proven to have positive impacts on the countries’ labor markets and economic development, providing opportunities for green job creation, skills development and other social benefits, such as decent jobs. Given that green jobs and skills are emerging concepts, this study aims to provide a knowledge base regarding their role in the transition to a sustainable economy in the developing country context. In order to do this, the study selected and analyzed 10 technical and financial organizations active in the field of green economy/ growth and green jobs/ skills at strategic and operational level and carried out 5 case studies on initiatives that aim to promote green jobs and skills in different regions and sectors. Based on this analysis, the study provides recommendations for better integration of green jobs and skills into policies and programs.
