Jul 22, 2021

UNDP commissioned the study on the green jobs and eco-entrepreneurship opportunities for women in India, across five major sectors: Renewable Energy, Green Transport, Green Construction, Water Management and Carbon sinks- Forest, Marine fisheries. The geographic focus of the study was-  Delhi NCR (National Capital Region), Haryana, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Telangana, Uttarakhand and Odisha.  

Each of the sectoral study includes a brief sectoral analysis and combines that with the potential areas for employment and entrepreneurship opportunities and the need for supportive policies. Overall the reports makes for a compelling case to include women in the green recovery process and integrate the marginalised community to build resilient economies.  This also provides the impetus to work with key stakeholders and partners to advocate for an inclusive and environmentally sensitive response to COVID-19 that resets towards greener pathways for recovery.
