The focus is on the labour market implications of environmental and economic policies, especially for employment assessment, job creation, skills development and working conditions.
The course has four modules: (i) introduction to green jobs; (ii) climate change adaptation and employment creation; (iii) green growth and the labour market; (iv) a “just transition” to a low-carbon economy; (v) strategies for green jobs.
The knowledge required for a sound understanding of basic concepts is shared, and relevant policy frameworks are analysed.
