"What might feasible, fair and consistent with the Paris Agreement (below 2ºC) pathways look like?"
is the key question of the worksop organised by Climate Strategies (CS), Institute for Structural Research (IBS) and Institut du Développement Durable et des Relations Internationales (IDDRI). The workshop will take place in Katowice in Central Mining Institute (Plac Gwarków 1)
on Monday, the 10th of December 2018
(between 1 PM – 5 PM).
The workshop will be focused on these crucial questions:
- How will the transition in coal sector affect coal production and consumption?
- What social and economic consequences could such changes entail?
- How should the transition challenges be reflected in strategies for the Polish coal sector, workers, companies and communities?
The purpose of the workshop will be to present possible transformation pathways in the coal sector and their effects on the labour market and the energy security of Poland. As an introduction, research on the transition’s implications on the labour market in Poland will be presented. Next session will focus on a case study from Germany and a brief overview of cases from South Africa, India, China and Australia. Invited stakeholders will then comment on the research input and discuss feasibility of proposed pathways and solutions. We hope that a workshop with such a wide stakeholder representation will allow to formulate conclusions useful for designing future transition policies.
