The term 'green jobs' can
refer to employment in a narrowly defined set of industries

employment consequences of policies to correct environmental

the literature focuses on direct employment created, with
more cursory treatment of indirect and induced job creation,

Villagers in Karen areas of southeast Myanmar continue to face widespread land confiscation at the hands of a multiplicity of actors. Much of this can be attributed to the rapid expansion of domestic and international commercial interest and investment in southeast Myanmar since the January 2012 preliminary ceasefire between the Karen National Union (KNU) and the Myanmar government. KHRG first documented this in a 2013 report entitled ‘Losing Ground’, which documented cases of land confiscation between January 2011 and November 2012.

Proponents of Green Growth emphasize not only the need to protect various forms of natural capital to sustain improvements in material living standards and poverty reduction, but also the potential for strategically crafted environmental policies to achieve sustainability at low cost, perhaps even to help stimulate growth.

This paper discusses short-run and
long-run effects of "green stimulus" efforts, and
compares these effects with "non-green" fiscal
stimuli. Green stimulus is defined here as short-run fiscal

by temporary under-employment. A number of recently enacted
national stimulus packages contain sizeable
