SIDE EVENT: Peer-learning workshop on policies for a just transition

Nov 21, 2023 | 12:15 PM - 1:15 PM


The concentration of carbon-intensive industries (e.g. cement, steel) poses significant challenges to regions whose economics are heavily reliant on such sectors. These territories often face the joint challenge of diversifying their local economy away from such sectors while dealing with legacies of economic stagnation and environmental degradation. This workshop brought together stakeholders from regions engaged in the low-carbon transition to discuss the challenges and solutions associated with transforming local economies, while ensuring a just transition for all. For example: • What participatory approaches can ensure that all stakeholders are included in decision-making processes? • What policies can support entrepreneurship and equip workers with skills to find employment in identified growth sectors, and how can local governments finance these? • How can regional stakeholders establish effective knowledge-sharing networks to accelerate the low-carbon transition?
