Climate Strategies at COP27
On Sunday morning, November 20th, COP27 delegates reached a deal: In a historic decision, they agreed to establish a loss and damage fund for countries that are “particularly vulnerable”. Despite efforts from a broad coalition of countries, the agreement fails to mention the phase-out of all fossil fuels and there’s no mention of oil and gas at all.

Our projects at COP27
This initiative brings together research institutions across nine countries in the Global South – Colombia, Ghana, Indonesia, Argentina, Bangladesh, Kenya, Laos, Malawi and Vietnam – in a new approach to develop tailored just transition strategies.
The project will deliver empirically validated modelling tools capable of assessing the impact of energy, innovation and technology-related policy choices to help decision-makers make better decisions on effective policies.
This initiative will develop a better understanding of oil & gas transition scenarios for the North Sea region. It will also co-produce just and feasible transition pathways and create roadmaps for countries facing similar challenges.
The Initiative, established in 2017 as Platform for Coal Regions in Transition, helps European countries, regions, communities and workers to take on the challenge of diversifying the economy while boosting the clean energy transition.
The SNAPFI project – Strengthening National Climate Policy Implementation: Comparative Empirical Learning & Creating Linkages to Climate Finance – explores how transformative change can be enabled by international climate finance through domestic policies in developing countries.
Climate Strategies is part of the consortium that between 2021 and 2023 will be operating the Secretariat of the Initiative for Coal Regions in Transition in Western Balkans and Ukraine.
