Just Energy Transition Partnerships (JETP) are fast becoming a go-to model for national-level decarbonisation initiatives. But they are also a new, untested, and so far ad-hoc model with enormous implications for the human rights of local workers, communities, indigenous groups, and consumers.

South Africa and Indonesia have led the way in negotiating early-stage financing with “International Partner Groups” (IPG) of donor governments and, more recently, the private financial institutions within the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net-Zero (GFANZ).

Through engagement with the respective JETP Secretariats, their counterparts in GFANZ, industry, and local civil society leaders, this official COP28 side event will share lessons and progress on the "J" in JETPs in South Africa and Indonesia. Cohosted by IHRB, the Ford Foundation, Climate Policy Initiative, Laudes Foundation, and African Climate Foundation, this session will unpack the mechanisms and processes used in both cases to build broad coalitions of societal support for JETP planning, but also to grapple with how to move to practical implementation.
