Mapping Green Occupations and the OFO

This project aims to support employers, SETAs, DHET and other parties to better determine green skills needs, at a firm and sector level, in 5-6 priority segments of the green economy. By identifying green skills needs in selected value chains, the project will differentiate green occupations and occupational pathways.

Working in a participatory manner with key employers and sector bodies, it will also help identify the potential and latent demand for green skills (unlocking green jobs) in these sectors. Key outputs include a practical toolkit and a submission on the refinement of the occupations on the Organizing Framework for Occupations (OFO), to better reflect green occupations in South Africa.

Please share your thoughts on, indicate your interest, or make suggestions, regarding the following segments, all of which are nexus areas for more than one social-ecological and occupational focus:
