Advancing International Cooperation and Knowledge Exchange for Implementing Just Energy Transitions in Coal Regions
While transitioning away from coal-based energy systems and dependent local economies is critical, ensuring a just transition, particularly in the Global South, is challenging. Bringing together various stakeholders, this COP 28 panel will discuss how partnerships, including the Just Coal Transition Platform and the Powering Past Coal Alliance, foster collaboration and knowledge exchange across countries and how the new Just Energy Transition in Coal Regions Knowledge Hub serves as a digital “one-stop shop” on just energy transition.
The event is co-organized by Innovation Regions for a Just Energy Transition (IKI JET) partners, the Powering Past Coal Alliance, and the Energy Transition Partnership. It will take place in the International Labour Organization pavilion at COP 28 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
