The planet is experiencing a climate crisis. The international community must pivot away from fossil fuels and toward clean energy. It must also do so in an equitable way, so that the most vulnerable populations do not shoulder the burden of transition.

The Global Just Transition project will provide updates on the status of Green New Deals, ecosocial pacts, and just transition plans around the world. Upcoming events will cover the European Green Deal, the South Korean Green New Deal, and new environmental organizing in Russia. We also collaborating on a project on the financing of fossil fuel projects in Africa, the limits of economic growth and buen vivir, and the challenge of local capacity to handle the influx of Green transition funds.
