CSIS and CIF gathered experts to discuss case studies from various countries where just transitions are advancing. The objective was to share ongoing research and lessons learned and to inform the next phases of the Just Transition Initiative. It featured a presentation on the transition in South Africa, drawing from a recent case study led by the Climate Investment Funds. It also featured a presentation on the just transitions work in Eastern and Central Europe and regional political economy factors in the context of EU initiatives, including the Just Transition Mechanism. The workshop provided a platform to discuss other regions and the need for additional place-based research in different contexts.
