Angul: Planning a Just Transition and a New Green Economy
Angul is the epicenter of Odisha’s coal mining and industrial economy which is expected to grow significantly over the next 10 years. However, the state is also highly vulnerable to climate change impacts. Ushering a green industrialisation along with coal transition, therefore, lies at the core of planning a just transition. The study on just transition for Angul was undertaken to evaluate how Odisha’s largest coal mining and industrial district can strategically plan for a just energy transition and simultaneously build a green economy in the coming decades.
