The transition toward a sustainable “green” economy is urgent to address both high unemployment and the increasing environmental costs of current patterns of resource utilization. As the world seeks to replace unsustainable patterns of resource utilization, efforts to put in place sustainable technologies represents a broadly distributed set of opportunities for economic development and employment generation. To establish sustainable economic approaches as the next frontier for economic development in APEC economies will require supportive policies at many levels, in particular quality education and training policies.
In support of the APEC HRDWG Human Capital Policies for Green Growth and Employment project, a symposium was held in Washington, DC, USA on March 20-21, 2012. Please review the links above for information on the meeting.
In March 2013, APEC released a report on the project that includes findings from an APEC survey on human capital policies and practices for green growth and employment and a summary of the March 2012 Symposium. Visit apec.org to download the full report.
