Want to know how you can help accelerate the transition from fossil fuels to clean forms of energy? Subsidy SWAPs aim to reform subsidies to fossil fuels and use the savings to fund the transition to clean energy, supporting investment in energy systems like renewables, energy efficiency and public transportation. IISD's Global Subsidies Initiative works with governments and partners to help remove fossil fuel subsidies that work against sustainable development. This video was supported by the Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate and the Nordic Council of Ministers.
