Green Jobs Explosion Predicted for India

by Green Jobs Ready on April 26, 2011

In a digital edition of the Financial Chronicle today, journalist Debeshi Gooptu Bakshi reported that more than 10.5 million individuals may be employed in various green jobs throughout India by the end of this decade.

Among Bakshi’s many sources to support this exciting hypothesis is a report that an institution known as The Climate Group, “a global environmental think tank,” released in March. The report, which is referred to by the name India’s Clean Revolution, “indicates that enormous potential exists for generating new income and jobs by developing domestic renewable energy resources and clean technologies in India,” Bakshi writes in the Financial Chronicle.

India offers a variety of blossoming green jobs industries, including sustainable housing organizations and corporations, green agriculture entities, green transportation technologies and the traditional host of green energy suppliers: solar energy, wind energy, and other alternative approaches to energy.

Bakshi cites Damian Ryan, a senior international policy manager at The Climate Group, as endorsing the probability of substantive growth in India. “Education and training of both the current and future workforce is obviously critical to seizing the opportunities of the Clean Revolution,” Bakshi quotes Ryan as saying.

“The good news is that the India government has been increasing its investment in education and research over recent years, with a four-fold increase in funding in the 2007-2012 five year plan,” he continues. “This will, no doubt, help to boost the number of engineers and scientists that India is increasingly well-known for producing.”
