Promoting Green Skills in the Cyprus Economy (1/2011) -EN

The Human Resource Development Authority of Cyprus (HRDA) has conducted a study entitled “Identification of Green Skill Needs in the Cyprus Economy 2010-2013”. The study specifies the green economy of Cyprus, provides employment needs forecasts for sectors of economic activity and occupations of the green economy and identifies green skill needs for the period 2010-2013.

The results of the study confirm that the transition to the green economy will strongly affect sectors of economic activity and occupations thus influencing the knowledge, skills and attitudes of the human resources. Consequently, in order to tackle the upcoming challenges and compete in a new economic environment, the enterprises need human resources that have the necessary green skills and competences.

 In the study, forecasts are provided on employment, expansion, replacement and total demand in green sectors of economic activity and occupations for the period 2010-2013. Furthermore, green skills for both existing and new green occupations are identified.

 The HRDA, in close cooperation with the Ministry of Labour and Social Insurance, has put forward a Special Scheme for Promoting Green Skills in the Cyprus economy, which includes a variety of targeted measures that are directed towards enterprises, employees and the unemployed in 3 interlinked action pillars:

  • Promotion of Green Skills for the Unemployed
  • Promotion of Green Skills for Enterprises and Employees
  • Enhancement of Infrastructures and Systems for the Promotion of Green Skills 

The HRDA has declared the year 2011 as the Year of Green Skills with the aim to effectively promote and publicise the importance of the acquisition of green skills
