India Just Transition Centre (IJTC) Virtual Launch Event and Report Release

June 29, 2021

The India Just Transition Centre (IJTC), a iFOREST initiative, is being set-up as a platform to work comprehensively on just transition through multi-stakeholder engagement.

At the launch of the initiative, the organisation suggested that workers and local communities dependent on the fossil-fuel industry for income and livelihood support should not bear the brunt of the transition to a low-carbon economy.

‘Just Transition’ ensures that the workers and the local communities dependent on fossil fuels like coal do not suffer due to the phase-out of coal to meet the climate change goals listed under the Paris Climate Agreement. It ensures decent work opportunities and social support systems for the people whose livelihood is likely to be affected by the energy transition.
