Green jobs assessment reports

GAIN members use the GAIN methodology to develop green jobs assessments. These assessments analyse the employment impact of green policies, thus helping policymakers to make informed decisions based on state-of-the-art empirical methods and evidence-based research. Although sharing a common vision and methodological framework, GAIN Reports vary in scope, context, and specific objectives, depending on country needs and capacities.

    Green Jobs in Tunisia: Measuring Methods and Model Results

    2018

    The current system of production is exponentially increasing the pressure on the environment, undermining world’s natural wealth and putting humans at risk by fuelling the negative effects of climate change. Within the context of the green growth scenarios envisaged in the Paris Agreement of 2015, this report studies the case of Tunisia and seeks to quantitatively analyse the extent of decent green jobs that currently exist in the country as well as the potential implications of such scenarios for Tunisian labour markets. Using the Input-Output (IO) economic modelling methodology, the study concludes that, assuming massive investment, the direct and indirect effects of a green jobs strategy could yield 272,000 green jobs in Tunisia by 2030.
