Discussion: What are strategic priorities for just energy transition in the Western Cape?
Thanks to those who responded to the initial meeting scheduler. Based off this, we have decided to have this webinar discussion next Wednesday 29th July, 3-5pm
We have subsequently added quite a few people to the list, so the details are provided again below.
As the event will focus on constructive discussion on aligning and complimenting research in this space, you are very welcome to invite further colleagues this field who you feel may be interested.
A calendar invite will come around shortly, and will be updated with the Zoom link and extra details in due course.
Webinar discussion brief:
Project 90 is continuing with work on just transition in the energy space. Given your involvement in this field, we would greatly value your input towards our current research project that is supported by FES.
While much of the debate on just transition in South Africa has been focused at the national level, or on Mpumalanga where coal activity is located, we are now also interested in what this change means for the area where our organisation is based, and how we can contribute. Progressive change in regions or cities within the Western Cape is necessary in its own right, but it will also contribute to broader system change in the country. We want to identify what research would assist with taking tactical, local-level steps in the right direction.
To help find this relevant research topic we have undertaken a scoping exercise in which we have interviewed officials at the provincial and city level on the strategic priorities in this space, and the levers that could attract political support under the current circumstances.
In this webinar, we want to share some initial results from the scoping phase of the project, but more importantly, we would like to refine our research ideas so that they do not duplicate work that you or your organisation are currently involved in.
Agenda for the discussion:
- a) Share ideas and themes that have emerged from the interviews
- b) Debate the prioritising of areas of possible action
- c) Align the trajectory of our project to best compliment the work that other organisations are doing.
Looking forward to the session.
