Partnerships for green jobs

The ILO’s Green Jobs Programme knows that strong partnerships are the building blocks of a sustainable future. They have contributed to the Programme’s success on a wide range of initiatives, from capacity building to research and technical support.
  1. Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE)

    PAGE is a 7-year programme to help countries transform their economies to be greener and more inclusive. It works to identify bottlenecks, weigh sustainable investment options and provide green-growth solutions to policymakers. In doing so, PAGE is helping to spur the growth of clean technologies and efficient infrastructure while promoting healthy ecosystems, green jobs and sound governance.
    PAGE was established following a call launched at Rio +20 for the UN to take an active role in helping countries transition to green economies while pursuing their development goals and reducing poverty.
    PAGE draws on the expertise of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the United Nations Institute on Training and Research (UNITAR), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the International Labour Organization.

  2. Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP)

    GGKP is a global network of organizations and experts working together to provide the data and analysis that is required to craft effective green-growth policy. A suite of world-class knowledge management and communication tools allows members to identify gaps in green-growth theory and to address them through coordinated research.
    GGKP was established in 2012 by the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Bank Group and has over 30 knowledge partners.

  3. One UN Climate Change Learning Partnership (UN CC:Learn)

    UN CC:Learn is a partnership of 33 multilateral organizations that helps countries design and implement climate-change learning and skills development strategies. It works at the global level by developing common learning materials, enhancing information exchange and coordinating learning among UN agencies and other partner programmes. It also advances One UN Climate Change Training products, which are available for free, and provides human-resources and skills development in partner countries.

  4. Green Growth Working Group (GGWG) of the Donor Committee for Enterprise Development (DCED)

    GGWG works to mainstream inclusive green-growth strategies in private-sector development (PSD). It is also an advocate for PSD in both green-growth strategies and other areas of development cooperation. GGWG facilitates information exchange on the latest developments in PSD-related green growth and will eventually use the growing experience and knowledge of its members to develop guidelines for specific aspects of green growth relevant to the PSD programs of DCED members.

  5. The Green Jobs Assessment Institutions Network (GAIN)

    GAIN is a network of research institutions and experts that works to assess the employment impact of policies designed to green the economy. It helps to fill an important knowledge and capacity gap, especially for developing countries. GAIN works to better understand the jobs dimension of green growth and to share that knowledge with its partners.

  6. International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD)

    IISD is a public-policy research institute that promotes human development and environmental sustainability through research, communication and partnerships. IISD works to reform economic policy so as to advance such key priorities as universal access to clean water and energy and the promotion of healthy, resilient ecosystems. It takes a science based approach to these issues, leveraging a growing body of knowledge and data to support sustainable change.

    IISD came into being in 1990 at the GLOBE Conference and Trade Fair on Business and the Environment in Canada. It now has offices in Canada, China, Switzerland and the United States, and operates in over 70 countries around the world.
