Environment – The greening of economies will require a mix of macroeconomic, industrial, sectoral, labour market and skills policies

The greening of economies through public and private investments in the context of
sustainable development and poverty eradication will require a mix of macroeconomic, industrial, sectoral, labour market and skills policies. These investments in the formal and informal sector will create and enable sustainable enterprises to prosper. Paying close attention to skills development for the transition to environmentally sustainable economies and the occupational requirements is crucial since the shift to greener economies brings
about structural changes in national labour markets. There is a need to review and coordinate skills development policies and TVET systems in line with the environmental policies. The occupational profiles across sectors will change and require for the most part new and different skills. This poses a considerable challenge of retraining those workers who may lose their jobs, upgrading the skills of the current workforce and providing the right skills to those entering the changing labour market. Matching supply and demand for skills through skills needs assessments and anticipation, engaging in social dialogue for responsive training systems, reviewing occupational profiles and training programmes, promoting equal access to opportunities for skills acquisition and recognition for all, promoting work-based learning
and practical experience as part of the training process in order to increase the employability
of jobseekers.
