Just Transition Governance and Financing across EU Member States

27 27+01:00 January 27+01:00 2022 @ 14:30 - 16:30

Sustainable development considers economic, social, and environmental matters holistically. Just Transition intends to counter the idea that valuing social aspects of sustainable development and caring for the environment are mutually exclusive goals.

In this context, ERCST decided to further analyse the social implications of the environmental transition, both at a global and an EU level. At EU level, the climate ambition under the EGD (-55% in 2030 and climate neutrality in 2050) will have social impacts spread unevenly. The EU is thus trying to make this transition fair, leaving no one behind.

This meeting will be an opportunity to take stock and unpack the governance of Just Transition initiatives across EU Member States by answering the following questions:

  • What is the EU already doing on Just Transition? Taking stock of the measures in place: mechanisms, funds, fiscal reforms.
  • What is the Just Transition governance and financing structure at Member State level?
  • Who is in charge of the preparation of the national and territorial just transition plans (TJTP) and what is their state?
  • What is working and what is not in the EU Just Transition governance?
