Evaluation of the potential of green and decent employment creation in Tunisia
The transition to a green economy is connected in most developing countries and emerging economies with the hope for positive employment effects. In post-revolutionary Tunisia, this is increasingly the case as unemployment has increased, especially among young people by the international financial and economic crisis, the decrepit structures of the old regime and the slow development of the post-revolutionary institutional reorganization.
