Comparative analysis of methods of identification of skill needs on the labour market in transition to the low carbon economy

Intended to assist researchers in anticipating skills, the report builds understanding of how to embark on a skills anticipation exercise, which is relevant for national, sectoral and enterprise level human resource development strategies related to climate change mitigation and adaptation.
It primarily deals with methodologies and institutional arrangements, and aims to inform decisions on the scope and level of skills anticipation research, sources of information, and available methodological approaches, both quantitative and qualitative. Research objectives, country context, data availability and institutional settings will determine which combination of methods to apply.
The report arises from a joint management agreement between the European Commission and the ILO on Knowledge sharing in early identification of skill needs.
