Guidance note 7-4

PEPs and Green jobs through green works

The objective of this note is to expose policy-makers and practitioners to possible opportunities for public employment programmes (PEPs) to create green jobs which comprise work in activities that improve natural resources productivity and are linked to climate change adaptation, environmental conservation and rehabilitation. Some of the challenges and opportunities for promoting these activities are also discussed and examples of projects provided. A number of potentially high impact opportunities are also identified.
