The meeting brings together the ILO Asia-Pacific regional Green Jobs team including the Senior Specialist for Environment and Decent Work (convener of the network), green jobs focal points in the ILO country offices and interested staff members in the region.

Sub-regional Web-meeting on Skills & Human Resources Development (HRD) for Green Jobs and Greening of Economies in Asia
The Asia-Pacific region is leading the world as the region with the best green jobs outlook if investments and policy reforms are realized. According to the ILO (2018a), up to 14.2 million net green jobs can be achieved by 2030. However, the creation of jobs won't happen on its own; instead, we must have the ability to spot possibilities and create strategic policies and interventions that are motivated by the Decent Work Agenda and the environment, respectively.
