Green Jobs Policy Readiness Assessment in Thailand

In most countries the transition to a green economy is still at an early stage and it is expected that job losses will occur due to changes caused by the transition to a green economy. However, ILO studies have concluded that these job losses will be smaller than initially expected (ILO, n.d.). The concepts of green jobs and a just transition to environmental sustainability (hereafter, a “Just Transition”) play an important role in the process of green economic policy development.
