In many low- and middle-income countries, up to two-thirds of the people are employed in the agri-food sector, with many smallholder producers being highly affected by climate change. On the other hand, agri-food systems account for roughly one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Green jobs in the agri-food sector, therefore, bring great employment opportunities while focusing on sustainable practices to minimise negative environmental and social impacts.

This how-to paper pragmatically defines what green jobs are within the agricultural sector and how the 360° AgriJobs Approach can help promote Green Skills and Jobs. The addition of concrete activities and lessons learned give real-life examples of how this is done in countries around the globe. Take a look and learn about the potential of green jobs in the agri-food sector.
