Skills for Green and Digital Transitions and Employment in Jordan

Discover how a green and digital transition could benefit the employment prospects of young Syrians and Jordanians in Jordan.

This study was made possible with the financial support of the European Regional Development and Protection Programme for Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq (RDPP II), which is backed by the Czech Republic, Denmark, the European Union, Ireland, and Switzerland.

The International Labour Organization (ILO) Partnership with the RDPP II in Jordan aimed to address the youth employment challenge and improve the livelihoods of young Syrians and Jordanians through evidence-based research and analysis.

This study examines the potential of six high-potential sectors to create green and digitally enabled jobs. The sectors include biofarming and agricultural technology, renewable energy, e-mobility, tourism and hospitality, water management, and information and communications technology (ICT).

The report offers recommendations for policy interventions to address skills gaps and priority areas for future action and highlights the urgent need to upgrade skills training to ensure that skilled individuals are available to support the country's green and digital transformation.
