Just Transitions within Sectors and Industries Globally

Since 2019, the Academy has undertaken an extensive programme of work on Just Transitions. Nine research projects were awarded in November 2021, building on the Academy’s work related to Just Transitions and COP26. These projects engage in exploring the needs, impacts, and implications of Just Transitions in diverse sectors, for diverse groups, and include diverse approaches to justice. They also consider how to build capacities and capabilities for climate change adaptation as well as mitigation. These projects were funded by the UK’s Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.
