COP26 and South Africa’s Just Energy Transition

Jonathan Hanto, Muhammed Lokhat

During the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference, South Africa signed an international partnership agreement with France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The ‘developed’ countries pledged $8.5 billion over the next 3-5 years to support a just transition towards a low carbon economy and climate-resilient society in South Africa (UNFCCC COP 26 2021). Referred to as “historical”, the partnership could assist South Africa in reaching its NDC targets and provide a decarbonization model for many other developing countries.
