A new book on green jobs, Decent Work, Green Jobs and the Sustainable Economy: Solutions for Climate Change and Sustainable Development From the World of Work, will be released in June by Greenleaf Publishing. Below is a summary of the book provided by the publisher:
This book provides a comprehensive overview of climate change, sustainable development and decent work. It addresses the challenges of achieving environmental sustainability and turning the vision of decent work for all into a reality. It also demonstrates that green jobs can be a key economic driver as the world steps into the largely uncharted territory of building a sustainable and low-carbon global economy. Author Peter Poschen shows that positive outcomes are possible but require a clear understanding of the opportunities and challenges as well as country-specific policies that integrate environmental social and decent work elements. The opportunities for gains may in fact be greatest in developing countries and emerging economies.
