This policy brief examines actions for a just transition that are fundamental to the socio-economic transformations of local job markets in developing countries’ cities. It outlines how this transition can create ‘winners’ and  compensate ‘losers’. Green jobs in cities are premised on ensuring a just transition of local employment markets, both formal and informal, and making cities function more sustainably. They are part of a wider inclusive green  economy aiming at carbon neutrality and resource efficiency with a focus on human well-being and social equity while paying special attention to local nature-based solutions.
