Just transition in Poland’s coal regions

Poland’s coal regions face a challenge of social, economic and climate transition along the process of closing coal mining and combustion operations. Support from the Just Transition Fund aims to help them mitigate the negative effects of this process.

The economic analysis and advisory support of Instrat’s experts helped raise funds to finance infrastructure investments and local community projects on the ground and increase the climate ambition of leading coal regions and companies. The scope of the studies carried out covered energy, regional policy, public finance of local governments and the labor market outlook.
