Employment model in Indonesia: Promoting green jobs and livelihoods through ecotourism and green homestays

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

Sustainable tourism in Indonesia is expanding and in great demand. Therefore, taking advantage of the huge potential for job creation and livelihoods within the tourism industry is an opportunity that needs to be acted upon without delay to help create green jobs and decent work. Implementing the employment model as a tool in sustainable tourism in Indonesia is a first but important step in this direction. It sets the normative and technical conditions for the large scale creation of jobs and livelihoods in Indonesia linked to ecotourism and green homestays. It achieves this by combining innovative partnerships, skills development, entrepreneurship and financial training to improve working conditions and reduce poverty by creating productive work at the local level.
