Green policies and jobs: a double dividend?

— theme: Specialized UN agencies and programmes

Nearly 40 per cent of all jobs worldwide are in high carbon intensive sectors. If we want to arrest climate change, this will inevitably create an employment challenge as workers will have to move to different jobs and sectors. And it raises the question to what extent 'green' policies can produce a double dividend, in terms of environmental and employment goals. This ILO article presents a series of questions and answers on climate change, green policies and jobs.
