Green Jobs in Nepal
PDF File Size: 236 KB | Download   
Green Jobs have become an emblem of a more sustainable economy and a society that preserves the environment for present and future generations and is more equitable and inclusive of all people and all countries. The rationale for green growth and clean development has mostly been presented as a win-win situation for the environment and for economic development. Relatively little and superficial attention has been paid to the social dimension of sustainable development, in particular to the implications for employment and for decent work. Environmental degradation, including the deterioration and exhaustion of natural resources are among the most serious threats to economic and broader sustainable development. These will in the future be exacerbated by the impact of climate change, which is already felt in many developing countries. In the medium to long term, projected climate change will lead to serious disruption of economic and social activity in many sectors and on all continents. Climate change itself, adaptation to it and efforts to arrest it by reducing emissions have far-reaching implications for economic and social development, for production and consumption patterns and thus for employment, incomes and poverty reduction. These implications larbour both major risks and opportunities for working people in all countries. According to a report commissioned by the UN Environment Programme under a joint Green Jobs Initiative with the International Labour Office (ILO), growing numbers of green jobs will be created as the move toward a low-carbon and more sustainable economy gathers momentum. These opportunities need to be properly assessed and exploited fully through a smart piloting of the green economy.
For example, winners are likely to far outnumber losers but specific attention must be paid to the workers and enterprise that may enter in the transition toward sustainability.
