VUSTA, GreenID and FES Vietnam jointly held International Conference “Fostering cooperation to ensure a just energy transition”

VUSTA, GreenID and FES Vietnam jointly held International Conference “Fostering cooperation to ensure a just energy transition”

Hanoi, September 18 2018 - The concept of "just energy transition" is not strange in Europe and North America but remains relatively new in Asia. Broadly, the process involves not only environmental aspects but also socio-economic changes, which are all needed to push for the global energy transformation to reach the goals stipulated in the Paris Agreement. Developing clean energy projects while reducing fossil fuel-based plants that pollute the environment is an irreversible trend in the world, including Vietnam. However, the issue of securing employment for affected workers and communities so that the transition is peaceful and does not cause social unrest has not been properly considered.
