Report of a study assessing the scale and distribution of green employment in Bangladesh, within the UNEP/ILO joint 'Green Jobs Initiative'.

Publishing Year

This is a report of a study estimating the scale and distribution of green employment in the economy of Bangladesh. It contributes to the ongoing work of the ‘Green Jobs Initiative', run jointly by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the International Labour Organization (ILO), the International Employers Organization (IOE) and the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC). The initiative was launched to assess, analyze and promote the creation of ‘decent’ jobs as a consequence of environmental policies. It supports a concerted effort by governments, employers and trade unions to promote environment sustainable jobs and development in a climate-challenged world.

This study has estimated, within the constraints of available data, environment-related employment in Bangladesh, the employment sustained by more environmentally friendly activities (described as ‘core environment-related employment in the report) and, within those areas, the number of decent jobs that thereby warrant the badge of a ‘green job’ under the UNEP/ILO definition of the term.
