QUESTION: Defining "clean" and "green" occupations and industries

question / pregunta: 

I am beginning research to create a white paper on the emerging "clean tech economy." I will need to define what are "clean occupations" and "clean industries." There does not seem to be a lot of official consensus out there on the topic on definitions.

The Pew Trust has released a report with their own definitions, as other agencies have done the same. State labor departments have released their own reports also, attempting to define these industries and occupations. The Bureau of Labor has mentioned "green jobs" occassionally, but has not created an official definition.

There is low inter-consistency between these reports on "clean" occupations and industry definitions. I am missing any source or leading report on the topic?

QUESTION: Georgia International Law Enforcement Exchange

question / pregunta: 

I work for American Friends Service Committee in Atlanta. We have recently become aware of a program called "Georgia International Law Enforcement Exchange(GILEE
0". We know that they send Atlanta Police cadets to Israel for training. We know that Atlanta police spend some time on illigal settlements to learn crowd control techniques.
We are trying to find out how GILEE gets it's funding.
We know that some of the money comes from the "Marcus Foundation" and we think some may come from, "Georgia State Unniversity" or at least the program gets free space for GSU.
We are also wondering who pays "Robert Friedmann" who is the director and founder of the program. We know he get's some money from GSU but we are not sure of the extent of the GUS/GILEE connection.

Any infromation about GILEE of Mr. Friedmann would be greatly appreciated.
