Shaping the eco-social contract – Perspectives on just energy transitions from around the world
Organised by UNRISD and the Green Economy Coalition [16.00-17.15 CET]
A basic principle of the just transition towards ecologically and economically sustainable societies is the need to address the challenges of the energy sector – and accompanying crises of energy poverty and energy insecurity. The development of a reliable, sustainable, affordable, energy sector that can meet these challenges is arguably the largest economic transition facing every region and society. Attempts to reshape the social contract, and embed ecological priorities, must grapple with the practical and ethical challenges of a just energy transition – and learn lessons from different regions and approaches.
This webinar – co-hosted with International Energy Poverty Action Week (IEPAW) – draws on the work of the Global Research and Action Network for a New Eco-Social Contract and Carlos Villaseñor’s Issue Brief ‘Evaluating Existing Transformations: The Case for a Just Energy Transition’ to open up a conversation on how different regions are attempting to shape just energy transitions at a time of global energy insecurity.
Our global south-based panel will respond to the research of the network, and present their own experiences and priorities from where they are working to achieve just transition in the energy sector.
