Introduction to policies and programmes for green jobs

This guide to green jobs has been developed to address some of the new and specific needs for information sharing and general understanding of the complex relationships between social, economic and environmental policies.

Without judging on the effectiveness of such policies and measures, it examines the different facets of sustainable development policy that can generate quality jobs, including green jobs, in a somehow systematic and comparable manner. In no way should it be considered as providing a comprehensive overview but rather an introduction to this rapidly evolving field of policy making. The publication has also been designed to help the reader have direct access to the information and examples without being required to read the whole report.
