Just Transition: from Aspiration to Action was hosted by CSIS and CIF as part of Climate Week NYC. Despite the growing recognition of its importance, few resources are available to countries, investors, civil society, and international development institutions seeking to achieve a just transition.
This event focused on tools and strategies that can be deployed in support of just transition planning and implementation. The first session covered the challenges of gender inequality and informal labor in just transitions, including green jobs programs and issues related to energy access. The second session explored place-based investment strategies and regional development plans, with a focus on operational issues and key metrics used to analyze investments and their social and economic impacts.
