Digitalisation and globalisation have sparked radical shifts in how we live and work. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated these trends even further spurring the fourth industrial revolution (4iR), and increasing the need for rethinking the world of work. Green jobs and digitally-enabled jobs emerge as a potential solution to the multiplex challenges of climate change, poverty and inequality, while also enabling African countries to create decent jobs for its youth. But what is needed to facilitate this transition to green and digitally-enabled jobs for young people in Africa? INCLUDE and Palladium will engage in a collaborative research project on the topic of green jobs for youth employment in Africa.
