  • Presidential Climate Commission (PCC) Just Transition Dialogues: The PCC is developing a set of recommendations to the government regarding critical decisions – particularly on energy policy and governance – that need to be made to accelerate decarbonisation in energy systems and grow jobs in new low-carbon energy industries, in ways that promote a socially just transition. The OneWorld team supported the process by organising, facilitating dialogues, and presenting stakeholder perspectives (in report form) to bring together decision-makers and build consensus between the social partners involved in the energy transition around these key decisions.
