A number of studies for industrialized countries assess how a transition to a sustainable, low-carbon economy might affect employment. These typically find overall job gains compared to business-as-usual scenarios. Knowledge of the total number of jobs and underlying job movements, as well as the quality of jobs, is vital to informing policies that enable a just transition to a green economy. At present there are few such studies for developing countries. A key bottleneck is the scarcity of information, particularly employment and production data on green jobs and on linkages with the rest of the economy.

As part of the ILO's Global Green Jobs Programme, this guide provides practical solutions, tailored to the considerations of developing countries, that can help fill these information gaps. The guide adopts a menu approach, providing policymakers with a range of options that take into account time and resource constraints as well as policy priorities.
