Countries are yet to harness the potential of migrant workforces to support their green transitions. Efforts to facilitate the economic integration of migrants are currently not aligned with green skills development and job creation, which are themselves inadequate. Similarly, there is a lack of coordination between international cooperation to support green transitions and green skills development, and international cooperation on global migration policies.
