The Future of Coal Project is a 2 year, multi-country project for research and policy dialogue, aimed at supporting a just and orderly phase-down of coal in major coal-using economies in order to mitigate climate change and other externalities of coal use. The Future of Coal Project includes research teams from France, UK, Germany, Poland, Australia, South Africa, India and China.
