Planning for social justice in Territorial Just Transition Plans in central and eastern Europe. September 2023 update – part II

This briefing’s main objective is to provide an analysis of how the Territorial Just Transition Plans for seven countries (the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Poland, Romania and Slovakia) approach social issues related to the impacts of the transition on women, youth and various other vulnerable groups.

It provides a short overview of the Just Transition Mechanism and discusses how social issues are approached in relevant legislation, primarily in the Just Transition Fund Regulation. It also conducts an overview of how the problems of the identified additional social groups we consider relevant to the just transition process have or have not been addressed in different countries’ Territorial Just Transition Plans. It also offers a summary of the current situation and our recommendations for addressing the identified issues.
