The Green Jobs Programme for Asia and the Pacific currently collaborates with ILO constituents in Bangladesh, China, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand. The programme is implemented through technical cooperation projects supported by several donor agencies and the ILO main resources. The main objectives of the programme are to:
  • enhance the capacity of ILO constituents to take part in dialogue on green jobs at local, regional and national levels by giving them access to quality data and information;
  • influence national policies and so contribute to an inclusive growth model that is job-centred, environmentally sustainable, and that promotes decent work; and
  • promote gender sensitive opportunities for green jobs by supporting demonstration activities and national programmes.
