The report finds that, while the bulk of green jobs are being generated in developed countries, the developing world is making impressive strides.
A project in Bangladesh that trains women and local youths to become certified solar energy technicians plans to create 100,000 jobs.
India looks to create 250,000 jobs through a program that will replace nine million cooking stoves more efficient ones.
The report concludes that "a green economy can generate more and better jobs everywhere and that these can be decent jobs."
