Green Jobs Assessment of Six Economic Sectors in Jordan - Synthesis Report

Efforts to identify and facilitate the transition towards a green economy are intensifying in Jordan. The Government of Jordan is currently supporting various policies, initiatives, and programmes aimed at achieving a green economy. First and foremost is the recently adopted Economic Modernization Vision 2033 (EMV) which aims to accelerate sustainable economic growth.

Unemployment, particularly among young people holding qualifications of at least Bachelors, is a persistent issue in Jordan and the creation of green jobs is high on the policy agenda. With the Ministry of Labour’s latest strategy, the National Employment Plan, the government aims to support sustainable job creation and has set itself an ambitious goal of 10% of jobs being green jobs by 2030.
