COP 27 Side Event | A Just Energy Transition for a Healthy Fossil-Free World
This hybrid event will explore the nexus of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3 (Good Health and Well-Being), SDG 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy), and SDG 13 (Climate Action). Speakers will demonstrate the potential for significant health gains by taking a just energy transition (JET) approach, including clean air, mental health gains, and improved access to health and nutrition. Our panel of experts will also present an action agenda for implementation.
Building a JET is an essential part of addressing both the energy and climate crises, ensuring that no one is left behind. The G7 and middle-income partners including India, Indonesia, and South Africa are looking to establish Just Energy Transition Partnerships (JETPs) to support the coal phase-out. A just transition is also a core ask among those calling for an incremental and decisive phase-out of all fossil fuels.
This event will explore the key principles for JET needed to deliver a clean energy future for a thriving and healthy society. Creating a healthy fossil-free world requires re-imagining a new energy future and delivering a system of diverse technology, innovative solutions, and decentralized ownership, with a focus on people, health, and the environment.
The speakers at this event will present a vision for delivering JET to create a healthy fossil-free world encompassing three components: economy and jobs, cities, and delivering energy access.
This event is organized in partnership with Health and Climate Network and SLOCAT Partnership for Sustainable Transport.
