Over the past decade, the green economy has become an important pillar of sustainable development policies in both developed and developing countries. It provides an attractive framework for building more resource efficient, less carbon, less environmentally harmful and more socially inclusive societies. There are tensions between competing green economy discourses, and there are a number of different definitions, all of which have serious flaws. The transition to a green economy will have an important impact on labor markets. Jobs will be lost in certain sectors, but new job opportunities will emerge. Many workers will need to be retrained and put into practical jobs that involve greater use of new technologies introduced to increase resource efficiency and reduce waste. The prospects for the development of a green economy in Uzbekistan assumes a programmatic approach to employment, which will focus on attracting resources, developing policies and activities in three areas: "Adaptive entrepreneurship and the labor market", "Social sustainability" and "Green transition". Education and science play a special role in the transition of Uzbekistan to a green economy. This requires further improvement of state standards, development of the scientific potential of the republic, revision of the educational process and advanced training system for training personnel in relevant specialties, as well as the preparation and publication of teaching aids, textbooks, visual and didactic materials for educational institutions at all levels. The article formulates the main directions of employment in the context of the transition to a green and innovative economy in Uzbekistan.
