Green jobs mapping study in the Philippines

This desk research report is the initial step in mapping existing green jobs in the Philippine labour market, based on available published data from government as well as non-government sources.

The mapping study will examine the linkages between the environment and the economy and the implications for the labour market of climate change. The report will contribute to building a common understanding of the linkages between economic, social and environmental policies in the Philippines. It will provide qualitative and quantitative information on the number and types of green jobs in key sectors of the economy with the intention of estimating actual green jobs in existing industries, based on available published data and substantiated by consultations and actual surveys. The final result of this mapping study will establish baseline figures which may be used as a basis to draft appropriate economic and social policies to further promote green jobs.
