Just Transition(s) to Low-Carbon Development—A Workshop of the Just Transition Research Collaborative
Effectively tackling climate change and setting the world on a sustainable, lowcarbon and socially just development path is the greatest challenge the world is now facing. Just Transition — the idea that justice and equity must form an integral part of the transition toward a low-carbon world — has been gaining traction internationally as we collectively strive to address the important questions raised by this concept. But is Just Transition simply another buzzword, or should we take it seriously to advance international climate and sustainable development debates?
