This podcast covers just transitions in South Africa, a country that has some of the highest levels of inequality, unemployment, and poverty in the world. South Africa is also highly dependent on coal, despite a substantial renewable energy procurement program. The discussion draws on a recent case study of just transitions in South Africa, and covers issues including sustainable development, social dialogue, financing a just transition, social transformation, geographic disparities, and skills development.
