ILO Report on Green Skills

Another example of research specifically on the green skills area is the International Labour Organisation (ILO), in cooperation with the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training, who conducted applied research into skill needs for greener economies across a range of countries.  Their research distinguished three different types of skills needs:

a) (re)training needs deriving from green structural changes in the labour market and major employment shifts within and across sectors;

b) new green occupations which emerge in the context of adaptation to climate change and mitigation of negative impacts in the country;

c) new types of skills, competences and skill gaps which need to be incorporated into existing occupational profiles.
