Following the money: Poland

This briefing provides an overview of the just transition envisioned in the Polish Territorial Just Transition Plans for the four regions designated to receive money from the Just Transition Fund: Upper Silesia (including the allocation for Western Małopolska), Lower Silesia (Wałbrzych), the Łódź region (Bełchatów) and Eastern Wielkopolska. It scrutinises and evaluates the economic, employment-related, 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.
