CLIMATE RECON 2050 – Intra-EU Exchange to Raise Awareness and Build Capacity on Long-Term Climate Strategies


Discussion Paper: A Just Transition for All or Just a Transition

The discussion paper raises the question what might a global Just Transition look like that keeps 1.5°C within reach. The authors argue that four aspects need to be considered. A transition is only just if it is a Just Transition for all. A transition is only just if it is fast enough to keep 1.5°C in reach. Just Transition debates are needed in all sectors of the real economy and finance. Climate ambition and Just Transition are not a question of either/or.

Background Paper: How Can EU Reform Strengthen EU Climate and Energy Policies?

The EU is fundamentally important for climate and energy policies in Europe. Because of this, EU reform is always a crucial moment for climate and energy policymaking. Now, triggered by Brexit, the EU has started a process of reflection and possibly reform. The early stage of the process offers opportunities for EU climate and energy policy to contribute and to shape it.
This paper discusses how EU reform can strengthen EU climate and energy policies. It focuses on the Bratislava process.
