By the end of 2022, the European Commission had approved nearly all of the Territorial Just Transition Plans submitted by eligible countries. As 2023 progresses, implementation is now picking up speed. Stakeholders across Europe are developing project pipelines, forming monitoring committees and taking other important and necessary steps to ensure no one is left behind in the just transition process.
In the third edition of our webinar ‘Navigating the just transition’, we zoom out and focus attention on the second and third pillars of the Just Transition Mechanism. With expert speakers Katerina Borunska, policy officer at the Directorate‑General for Economic and Financial Affairs, and Joanna Ryłko, project officer at the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy, working on the second and third pillars respectively, we shine a light on the challenges and opportunities involved.
