Just Transitions: A Review of how to Decarbonise Energy Systems while Addressing Poverty and Inequality Reduction

Reducing poverty and improving equity
Posted Jun 27, 2022 | German Development Institute, Daniele Malerba

As the impact of climate change will persist, exacerbating poverty and inequality, it is critical to avoid a triple injustice whereby the poorest people and countries that have contributed least to climate change, will suffer the most from its effects and from climate change mitigation policies, warns Daniele Malerba in German Development Institute discussion paper. She critically examines which social protection mechanisms can be used to enable just transitions, so that energy transitions, including policies to incentivise them, reduce, rather than increase, poverty and inequality. She suggests how social protection mechanisms can reverse negative effects and make climate mitigation more politically and socially feasible.
