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 Commissions 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. This online Policy Dialogue explored the role of the JTM in facilitating the transition to a climate-neutral economy that leaves no one behind. The panellists discussed the latest developments linked to the Just Transition Fund and the needs of the energy sector in order to achieve a fair transition.
