Countries across the globe are in search of policies and strategies which advance and reconcile multiple social, economic and environmental goals. In designing such policies employment and labor market outcomes play a central role. Countries are particularly interested in knowing about the direct, indirect or induced, the gross and net effect on jobs. What options are available to maximize job gains and minimize losses? How to ensure more gender and income equality and provide social protection for those losing their jobs?

In most cases, such information cannot be made available in the absence of empirical assessments and economic models. The Green Jobs Assessment Model was developed to fill this gap and provide a methodology which countries can use to answer multidimensional policy questions. Countries may use the model for research, analysis and evidence-based policy making, financial and national development planning. Notably, the model is perfectly suited to inform climate policies and the National Determined Contributions (NDCs). Countries have a tool at their disposal to analyze and design climate policies which maximize job creation, minimize and protect job losses.
