The Green Economy Initiative will create an inflection point in the global economy, leading to a new generation of green products, services, technologies and innovations. The green manufacturing, service, and agriculture economies will demand the development of new skills, resulting in the need for job and educational training. Restructuring towards the green economy will also demand a large scale redistribution of jobs across and within industries. Green jobs will be generated to deliver products, services, technologies and innovations requiring new skills and qualifications. As a result, vocational employment is also expected to increase. There is tremendous opportunity in building an inclusive, green economy to provide jobs to workers with disabilities and lift disabled people out of poverty into economic self-sufficiency. This is a key challenge pertaining to the Green Economy Initiative.
The SUDI 2012 Conference will address inclusive strategies for disadvantaged populations to find job opportunities in the ever-changing workforce-demands of the new and emerging green economy.
