The main objective of the Zambia Green Jobs Programme (2013-2017) is to ‘promote more and better jobs for inclusive and green growth in sectors where goods and services can be produced with an environmental benefit’. The Zambia Green Jobs programme is a multifaceted intervention spanning three main objectives that each contribute to the final intended impact of sustainable enterprises and decent green jobs. The first main pillar (the ‘meta-level’) is aimed at changing mind-sets and attitudes in towards an increased appreciated of green construction. The second main pillar (meso-level) is aimed at promoting an enabling business environment that allows sustainable private sector development. Finally, the third pillar is focused on the creation of sustainable micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs) that create decent green jobs.
