ILO - 2012. This research brief is a digest of the study Skills and Occupational Needs in Green Building (ILO, 2011), which resulted from a joint EC-ILO project on Knowledge sharing in early identification of skill needs. The project covered over 30 countries worldwide – both developed and developing. It was supported by the EU Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity – PROGRESS (2007-2013) and implemented in the framework of the Green Jobs Initiative – a partnership between the ILO, UNEP, IOE and ITUC. The study draws on a number of country case studies and a survey of ILO constituents including governments, employers’ and workers’ organisations. The findings were validated through a focus group discussion and an experts workshop.
