Green Jobs in Asia - Philippines

The ILO works with Philippine counterparts to enhance capacities of workers’ and employers’ organization to contribute fully to the development and implementation of just transition measures of green jobs at the national level, including policy frameworks such as the Decent Work Program, the National Jobs Pact, the Medium Term Development Plan of the Philippines and the National Climate Change Action Plan.

The effect of financial crisis and climate change has brought about major shift of labour market arrangements in Asia including the Philippines. The need for a sustainable and climate resilient economy is more pressing than ever, especially in the areas of economic productivity, decent work and environment friendly economic activities.

The project, funded by the Government of Australia, is one of the green jobs initiatives of the ILO. The project’s goal is to enhance capacities of its constituents - government, workers and employers, to undertake just transition measures including green jobs governance, greening of enterprises and decent work. Key strategies are assistance to policies, research and communication, capacity building, demonstration project, knowledge sharing and assistance to tripartite structure formation.

Through social dialogue and action learning as main approaches, the Green Jobs in Asia Project intends to help lay the ground for the creation of green jobs in the Philippines in areas of energy efficiency or renewable energy; basic industry especially construction; solid waste management; and agriculture, fishery and forestry which includes natural resource management/protection.
