This briefing paper, developed by the Low Carbon Frameworks: Transport team, provides a high level overview of employment across South Africa's transport sector.
One of the aims of WWF's work in this sector is to understand the implications of a transition to lower carbon alternatives for the non-energy sectors of the economy and society. It is important to understand employment in the sector, so as to anticipate where a low-carbon transition might lead to the greatest job losses or job creation. While not a definitive assessment of employment in the sector, the paper provides a summary of existing data covering passenger transport, freight transport and supporting services.
