The Green Jobs Assessment Institutions Network (GAIN)

GAIN is an international network of individual researchers, research institutions and international organisations that aims at developing tools to better understand the effects of green policies on employment and therefore contribute to promoting the just transition to the green economy.
In order to achieve this objective, GAIN developed a methodology that uses Input-Output Analysis and allows to investigate the quantitative effects of green policies on employment. More details on this methodology can be found in the recently launched GAIN Training Guidebook.

Framed within the Just Transition, this analysis allows countries to foresee the opportunities and risks to reshape their economic and labour policies and investment decisions to maximize employment gains.
See more information about the GAIN’s background, objectives, and outcomes.

Training Guidebook

GAIN has developed its policy-oriented Training Guidebook. This guidebook offers tools to policy makers, research institutes and statistical offices to undertake country green jobs assessments. The methodology used for the final assessment uses Input Output Analysis. Discover more about this guidebook.

Green Jobs Assessment Reports

  1. Green Jobs Assessment Reports are policy-oriented research projects that aim at providing insights on the employment impact of green policies. Underpinned by the GAIN standardised methodology detailed in the GAIN Training Guidebook, the results of these assessments feed into the formulation of national policies that support the Just Transition.
