Members of South Africa’s sustainability community participated in an assessment commissioned by the Partnership for Action on the Green Economy (PAGE) to identify the learning needs that should be addressed in the country’s transition to a greener economy. A team of researchers from Rhodes and Wits universities undertook the Green Economy Learning Assessment which was supported by UNITAR (funder) as well as the ILO and several government departments including DEA, DST and dti. Based on surveys, case studies and stakeholder workshops, the study identified technical, relational and transformative competencies evident among green economy ‘champions’. It also produced a database of some of the initiatives that education and training providers are already developing in order to address such learning needs. The report makes several recommendations including the need to appropriately evaluate green economy policy and skills development implementation.
