This report analyzes elements of successful strategies for just transitions through four core principles: understanding the context, identifying champions, making the case, and implementing just transitions measures. The authors provide guidelines for each of these principles, using them to examine six short case studies of just transitions in various countries, highlighting successes and failures.
The paper outlines best practices for just transitions, including a summary of steps to initiate or support just transitions. The authors recommend detailed political economy analysis be done in advance and emphasize the importance of developing clear political and communications strategies that explain the rationale and tangible benefits of transitions. The authors also identify funding mechanisms for just transitions and assess quantitative approaches to estimating employment impacts. A table lists important tactics to help achieve these goals.
