Governance and Social Impact of Coal Regions under Transition

The main objective of SITRANS is to promote the place-based governance approach and tailor-made transformative policies in areas that are intensely experiencing the phase-out of coal.

The project addresses the complex nature of decarbonisation in coal regions. To do this, it will consider the socio-economic and environmental factors at play in this process and develop a robust framework to involve residents in decision-making. The ultimate aim is a just transition. Such an endeavour requires improved governance at all levels by empowering public and private stakeholders, especially through participative governance models.
