This course equips participants with an in-depth understanding of how the greening of economies will impact skills development. It focuses on industries that can contribute to environmentally sustainable economic transformation, the green jobs potential of different sectors, and the associated skills needs as economies go green. Relying on country-based case studies and reviews of best practice, the course strengthens participants' capacities in skills needs assessment, skills anticipation and the design and delivery of quality green-skills-development projects and programmes.
