    Economic development and employment


Indonesia’s rapid socio-economic development has had a negative impact on the environment and the climate. Therefore, environmental protection and the decarbonisation of the economy are given high priority in National Development Planning. To achieve long-term economic growth and the Indonesia Vision 2045, the Indonesian Government aims to promote the transition to a green economy.

The coupling of broad-based economic growth with environmental, resource and climate protection is still at an early stage. State and private actors require concrete approaches to leveraging the employment potential of a green economy. Above all, there is a lack of future-oriented upskilling and reskilling opportunities to enable a socially just and inclusive transformation of the labour market and to ensure the availability of qualified specialists for the green economy.


Selected public and private stakeholders are enabled to promote employment in green jobs inclusively.


The project is being carried out on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). It is implemented by the Ministry of National Development Planning (Bappenas) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.

The project advises ministries and associations on the operationalization of the national Green Jobs Roadmap to improve the framework conditions for green jobs. In addition, TVET stakeholders are supported in introducing new inclusive upskilling and reskilling programmes based on labour market demand. This includes needs assessment, curriculum development and the training of TVET personnel. In selected pilot provinces, the project advises representatives of government, business and civil society on the joint development of local strategic plans and on trialling initiatives to promote employment in green jobs.
