JEUDI 30 DÉCEMBRE 2021 BIZWEEK ÉDITION 375 Q BIZ ALERT REPORT BY UN WOMEN, AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK Can women benefit from green jobs ? « Yes, but… » The transition to a green economy is expected to create many new jobs around the world, including in sub-Saharan Africa. But will the economic transformation offer women access to higher-paying, more stable jobs ? According to a new report released by UN Women and the African Development Bank, the short answer is « yes », but only if countries adopt strong enabling policies and programmes The report, titled Green Jobs for Women in Africa, points out that women are well-positioned to benefit from primary-level jobs that will be created but not higher-paying ones in the renewable energy, infrastructure, or transportation sectors. This is despite the critical role African women play in the economy and in managing climate change in their communities. Oulimata Sarr, UN Women’s Regional Director for West and Central Africa, said  : « Some of the obstacles that women face to access green jobs in energy, infrastructure or the circular economy are rooted in social norms and changing those takes time. We are at an acceleration moment. We need to act now to ensure that the transition to the green economy in the region does not leave women and girls behind. » Among the constraints women face are gender segregation in makes searching simple education and employment, lack of access to formal-sector work, endemic financing gaps, as wellas social norms that leave women shouldering the bulk of unpaid care work. Vanessa Ushie, Acting Director of the African Natural Resources Centre of the African Development Bank, said  : « Women play a vital role in managing Africa’s natural capital assets and building climate resilience in our local communities. Carbon credits provide an opportunity to reward women for the critical role that they play in protecting our mangroves, forests and other ecosystems essential for carbon sequestration and environmental sustainability across Africa. » The report’s recommendations include the provision of skills coupled with other more ambitious interventions such as unpaid care services, removal of gender biases from national legislation or leveraging the opportunities offered by new green economic instruments like carbon credits to assign greater economic value to the unpaid work women do to mitigate climate change. A range of sectors will create green jobs in sub-Saharan Africa. Energy, construction and agriculture will create the largest number of green jobs. Women are well placed to seize opportunities in all sectors identified in this report – except transportation, construction, and certain areas of energy where women’s participation currently is low. While women are well positioned to access green jobs in many sectors, the report also shows that they are currently overwhelmingly concentrated in sectors that are likely to create more low-end types of green job opportunities than high-value green jobs. A positive development, however, is that even in sectors where women are not well represented, they are finding niches, often as small women-led businesses in indirect jobs in green construction, renovations or energy efficiency. Women face a number of barriers that may limit their fullaccess to access green jobs in the coming years. Some barriers to women’s participation in green jobs are sector-specific, such as social norms that deem construction jobs inappropriate for women. Others permeate all sectors. These include barriers to women’s and women-led businesses’access to land, finance and technology ; gender segregation in the education system and labour market ; laws that limit women’s access to certain tasks and jobs ; and structural inequalities reflecting social norms dictating that women should shoulder the majority of unpaid WOMEN care work, effectively depriving them of opportunities for other jobs.
