This report summarises the findings of a case study project on growing clean-tech cluster activity in the Negev region of Israel.
National and sub-national governments around the world are operating substantial policies to promote high-growth firms, that is, firms with the potential to grow rapidly in terms of turnover and employment over a short period of time, generally 3-5 years.
The Negev region has the potential to deliver real and tangible benefits for regional development, green growth and social inclusion. The report explains how the region can exploit its existing strenghts and competitive advantages, including a niche in research, demonstration and testing in renewable energies and water efficiency.
A successful transition towards a greener economy will create new opportunities for workers, but also new risks. The challenge for labour market and skill policies is to maximise the benefits for workers and help assure a fair sharing of adjustment costs, while also supporting broader green growth policies (e.g. by minimising skill bottlenecks).
