This webinar will provide a brief overview of what is meant by ‘just transition’, where the idea came from, and how it relates to nature-based solutions and climate action. The webinar will draw on the experience from the Centre for Climate Justice and Glasgow Caledonian University’s research in this field.
This webinar is part of a series exploring nature-based solutions and the fundamental role they play in meeting climate ambitions, restoring ecosystems and protecting biodiversity. This webinar series is part of our activities in the third theme of our STAGES on the road to COP26: Adaptation.
