As coastal area on the Baltic Sea in north-central Poland, Pomorskie faces unique challenges and opportunities associated with the transition to a green economy, a diversified economy, growing population and significant natural resources. This report focuses on the sustainable development of the oceans and coastlines surrounding the region, known as the blue economy.


Based on an OECD survey designed to capture the needs and perceptions of local employers (mostly of small- and medium-sized enterprises [SME]), this report analyses the specific skills needed to support green growth in Pomorskie, and how related labour market and training programmes can be made more effective in supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy.




Skills ecosystem responses

This chapter analyses the training and skills development landscape in Pomorskie, Poland including what programmes and policies have been introduced to address potential skills shortages within the local labour market. Through the identification of which skills are in demand in Pomorskie, training and education policies can be shaped to answer these needs. This chapter looks at how several skills development programmes are supporting the transition to a greener economy. The chapter also draws on lessons learned from coastal areas in other OECD countries which are applicable to Pomorskie. These examples are used to draw conclusions about how to boost the supply of “green” skills in Pomorskie.
