This session is a call to action for a stronger focus on just transition in climate action and finance in the context of international development cooperation. Just transition encompasses the ecological transformation of the entire economy and society with a special focus on social compatibility. Cities offer the opportunity to think about social inequality and climate together across the sectors of construction, infrastructure, energy, water mobility and circular economy and to bring a just structural transformation to a post-fossil world in line with global climate and development agendas. After a brief introduction by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development on just transition and how it is applied in the German context, the participants will have the opportunity to participate in an interactive breakout rooms to discuss practices related to community inclusion in climate finance.
