South Africa’s Energy Fiscal Policies Webinar on January 31, 2022.

 

This webinar, organized in partnership with Trade and Industrial Policy Strategies (TIPS), will provide participants with a first look at findings from the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) report South Africa’s Energy Fiscal Policies: An inventory of subsidies, taxes and policies impacting the energy transition, presenting key takeaways and recommendations.

The report explores the extent to which South Africa’s current energy fiscal policies are aligned with its goal to develop a robust domestic energy system that can provide low-carbon energy at a fair cost to all. It provides clear recommendations for the government to align its fiscal energy policies with its climate and energy objectives.

Through a panel discussion and a Q&A session, participants will be encouraged to engage in a debate on carbon tax, bailouts, and what international moves to phase out fossil fuel financing and oil and gas exploration mean for South Africa.
