Submission on Ireland’s Territorial Just Transition Draft Plan
The EU Just Transition Fund (JTF) is a newly established fund designed to assist communities across the European Union to meet the challenges of the green transition in line with the objective of achieving EU climate neutrality by 2050 in an effective and fair manner ensuring that nobody is left behind. The JTF is one of three pillars of the Just Transition Mechanism which was proposed as part of the European Green Deal.
The implementation of the JFT is centred on Territorial Just Transition Plans which identify EU territories and workers which are expected to be the most adversely affected by the climate transition and which set out plans to alleviate the socio-economic impacts of this transition by, for example, supporting the re-skilling of workers in the fossil fuel sectors.
