Mapping International Policy Toward a Just and Equitable Phase Down of Fossil Fuel Production

Invitation Only

Awareness is growing of the need to align the production of coal, oil, and gas with global climate and sustainable development goals. A globally just transition from the fossil-fuel system currently underpinning the global economy will require significant international coordination and cooperation. This is the second of several dialogues to explore existing efforts and opportunities to enhance global cooperation and collective action to align production with the Paris Agreement’s climate goal of limiting warming to below 1.5°C.

The Stanley Center for Peace and Security and the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty Initiative are co-organizing this virtual workshop with the following objectives:

  1. Map and identify international policy fora, processes, and mechanisms where there are policy barriers and enablers at the international-level to the phase out of fossil fuel production.
  2. Examine a comprehensive set of international policy areas that involve goal setting around climate change and fossil fuel production; transparency and accountability mechanisms; rules around trade, investment, and finance; capacity building and technology development and transfer mechanisms; and justice and equity principles and systems.
  3. Formulate new functions and mechanisms that fill gaps in international policy and develop diplomatic strategies that encompass countries, international organizations, campaigns, and other key stakeholders.

This discussion will gather 20-30 participants representing key points of view in efforts to advance the phase down of fossil fuel supplies at the international level.
