Following the money: Bulgaria

This briefing provides an overview of the just transition envisioned in Bulgaria’s Territorial Just Transition Plan for the three regions designated to receive money from the Just Transition Fund: Stara Zagora, Pernik and Kyustendil. It scrutinises and evaluates the economic, environmental and social aspects of the plans and shows how the investments are to be divided among the respective policies for each of these areas. Unlike our previous briefings, this time we not only focus on the content of the Territorial Just Transition Plans themselves, but also on how the objectives described in the plans specifically translate into the allocation of funds. In short, we follow the money.
