This employment model for green jobs in the Philippines is produced by the Green Jobs in Asia project which is supported by the Australian Government (2010–2015). The construction of social housing is not typically considered a testing ground for green innovation. However, eligible residents of the Southville 8 housing project in Rodriguez, Rizal are learning the skills necessary for the production and installation of environmentally-friendly construction materials, improving their employment prospects and creating a healthier, more climate-secure community in the process. The employment model in sustainable construction for the Philippines establishes a strategy for the creation of green/er jobs. It does so by supporting innovative partnerships and developing curricula for skills, entrepreneurship and financial training to promote green jobs for low-income communities, with a particular focus on women. This strategy is based on the construction of new-build projects, involving a multi-tiered approach, with partners drawn from both the public and private sectors.
