As discussions on recovery strategies from the coronavirus crisis intensify, now is the time to ensure that the measures taken will lead to a sustainable and climate-neutral economy, while providing regions and sectors with the support they need in the transition. The COVID-19 crisis with its economic repercussions also casts a new light on the European Commission’s proposal for a Just Transition Mechanism (JTM), and the Just Transition Fund, which have been promoted as instruments to assist those regions and sectors that are most affected by the energy transition. With the economic slowdown and re-opening of the multi-annual financial framework shaking up the original plans, this Policy Dialogue will discuss the role of JTM, and especially the Just Transition Fund, in facilitating the transition to a climate-neutral economy that will leave no one behind.
