    Green Jobs in Tunisia: Measuring Methods and Model Results

    07 June 2018

    The current system of production is exponentially increasing the pressure on the environment, undermining world’s natural wealth and putting humans at risk by fuelling the negative effects of climate change. Within the context of the green growth scenarios envisaged in the Paris Agreement of 2015, this report studies the case of Tunisia and seeks to quantitatively analyse the extent of decent green jobs that currently exist in the country as well as the potential implications of such scenarios for Tunisian labour markets. Using the Input-Output (IO) economic modelling methodology, the study concludes that, assuming massive investment, the direct and indirect effects of a green jobs strategy could yield 272,000 green jobs in Tunisia by 2030.
