Employment model in Bangladesh: Promoting green jobs in renewable energy sector

This employment model is produced by the Green Jobs in Asia project supported by the Australian Government – ILO Partnership Agreement (2010–2015)

While new jobs in the renewable energy sector are on the rise in Bangladesh, efforts must be made to ensure that these jobs provide pathways to sustainable employment through productive and decent work. The employment model for green jobs in Bangladesh tackles these issues through the formation of innovative partnerships, development of curricula and competency standards, and skills training courses on the installation and maintenance of solar home systems. The target beneficiaries are unemployed women and men in 10 rural districts.
