Taking a Just Transition Approach to Practical Decision Making
Keywords:Just Transition, Climate Change, Energy, Decision Making
A just transition that achieves decent work for all, social inclusion and poverty eradication is unlikely to occur without active guidance. Much of the focus for making a just transition a reality is at a more abstract policy scale, and a gap exists for concrete guidance in achieving a just transition in a practical sense. This article provides two frameworks – at a project scale, and at an organisational scale – for assessing alignment with a just transition. It uses the example of energy to illustrate both the scale of the challenge being faced, and how such frameworks could be applied in practice.
