Opportunities for green jobs in the waste sector

Opportunities for green jobs in the waste sector

Objectives

This course focuses on the potential for decent work promotion and green business development across the waste hierarchy, with a focus on waste collection; reuse, refurbishment and remanufacturing; sorting and recycling; as well as reduction at source. Lessons will be learned from a review of the international literature, analysis of case studies and interviews with those involved.

There will be special emphasis on:

- Improving current jobs and livelihoods - Developing solutions to bridge gaps in the recognition and integration of the contributions made by workers and SMMEs in the informal economy.

- Unlocking new opportunities - Identifying business ideas in the circular economy (product design and manufacture; waste reuse, refurbishment and remanufacturing) and jobs in new, alternative waste treatment technologies but also for new waste streams.
