About

Green Jobs-AP is an ILO-sponsored Community of Practice (CoP) that promotes green jobs as a way of generating decent employment in the transition to the green economy. It aims to support the sharing and leveraging of knowledge, deepen understanding of the issues and encourage networking and debate among ILO constituents, committed professionals and practitioners, including those interested in the broader aspects of poverty reduction and sustainable development.

Currently, due to resource constraints, the COP is only providing access to Green Jobs knowledge resources, such as research papers, reports, training materials and multimedia.

Information on upcoming events (including workshops, courses and e-courses, seminars and more), and relevant news items can be found on the main ILO website, www.Ilo.org/asia.
