|| As the global share of renewable energy generation continues to increase, transition planning is required to ensure that fossil fuel dependent regions and workers are not stranded by the energy transition or by climate change policy. FSR Talks invites leading experts to discuss possible pathways towards a sustainable, low carbon and equitable energy system which is better for people and the environment. Given the high levels of poverty and growing unemployment in the developing world, energy and climate policy must contribute to a development pathway that addresses these socio-economic challenges. The discussion will highlight various elements of a just energy transition on universal access to affordable and clean energy, corporate and business reform, the shift in ownership of energy, empowerment of workers and communities and environmental restoration.
The topic of the debate is ‘Just Energy Transition: What and how to go about it?’. How different are the transition journeys in the developed and developing world?
