Green jobs in Namibia: Opportunities for job creation in the green economy

“Our focus on promoting the green economy in Namibia is motivated by the need to improve and create a harmonious balance between the well-being of our people and the imperative of industrialisation, job creation, the utilisation of our natural resources for the benefit of our people and the need to ensure sustainability and environmental conservation.” – President Pohamba

Towards Green Jobs

To address unemployment (the social challenge), the country needs to move towards an economy that creates a significant number of new jobs. Green jobs offer a way of generating decent work whilst simultaneously achieving environmentally sustainable economic and social development (environmental challenge).

Green jobs reduce the environmental impact of enterprises and economic sectors, to levels which are ultimately sustainable. They contribute to reducing the need for energy and raw materials, to avoiding greenhouse gas emissions, to minimising waste and pollution, and to restoring ecosystems like clean water, flood protection and biodiversity.

For the ILO, the notion of green jobs summarises the transformation of economies, enterprises, workplaces and labour markets into sustainable practices providing decent work.
