Context and issues
Coal still represents 28% of global energy consumption. It is clear that meeting countries’ commitments under the Paris Agreement requires already significant reductions in coal consumptions. In many coal dependent countries, this raises significant political, social and economic issues.
The objective of this project is to develop credible and feasible trajectories and policy packages for deep transitions in the coal sector in six major coal using countries : Australia, China, Germany, India, Poland, South Africa.
IDDRI and Climate Strategies are the implementing partners for the Coal Transitions Project.
