Shaping a just transition to clean fuel-based energy sources

The ongoing global energy crisis has highlighted countries’ vulnerabilities to energy shocks due to an overdependence on fossil fuels. Clean energy sources are an ideal option for states looking to hedge against the risks associated with fossil fuels. Moreover, recent technological advances and falling costs have placed renewables at the centre of the global energy landscape. Developing countries are now on the cusp of a historic shift towards clean energy sources, but several challenges will need to be addressed urgently to ensure a smooth just transition.
