Digitalisation and globalisation have led to radical changes in our lives and work, creating a need to rethink the world of work.
Africa in particular will face two major challenges: adapting its societies to mitigate the effects of climate change and creating decent jobs for its growing population.
To address the complex challenges of climate change, poverty, and inequality while creating decent jobs for African youth, green and digitally-enabled jobs have emerged as a potential solution.
But what is required to facilitate this transition to green jobs for young people in Africa?
To answer this question, INCLUDE and the Challenge Fund on Youth Employment are collaborating on a research project focused on green jobs for youth employment in Africa.
This long-term partnership is aimed at strengthening the evidence base on decent work and youth employment, particularly with regards to green jobs and the future of work, providing key insights, practical guidance to policymakers and practitioners, and building a community of practice around youth employment in Africa.
In this video, you can learn more about the topic and find insights from our first research paper on how to leverage green jobs to realise the transition to a green economy.
