Presidential Climate Commission Just Energy Transition Project

What we are doing

The Presidential Climate Commission (PCC) has been working on developing pathways to support the South Africa’s Just Transition (JT) to low carbon and climate resilient economy and society. This activity is needed to further support and strengthen the PCCs stakeholder and community engagements and participation in the decisions that affect them relating to the JT. This activity is needed to help the PCC understand how it can effectively strengthen its engagement approaches with different stakeholders and communities on climate change and JT- related topics. This activity places on local governments the urgent to understand and be equipped to respond to the transition in a rapid manner. This rapidness includes collaborating and co- creating with the communities, PCC, and other social partners to create and strengthen awareness on climate change and the JT, facilitate consultations and capacity building and training to enable communities to be equipped to participate in the JT, as well as developing practical ways to respond to climate change. This activity has the potential to help local governments particularly in the current two transition priority areas (Mpumalanga and the Eastern Cape), to build their own capacities and to collaborate with the PCC and other social partners to help build their capacities on the JT, so that they are able to develop policies that respond to the JT. Policies that also build the capacities of stakeholders and communities within their municipalities.

What we are achieving

Through this activity, ICLEI AS is helping the PCC to effectively strengthen its stakeholder and community engagements with a different of stakeholders and communities. Through this activity, ICLEI AS has developed a report for the PCC on Stakeholders Perspectives on Engaging with South Africa's Just Transition. Qualitative research methodology was used, interviews with various stakeholders and focus groups with communities were the two key data collection tools utilised. This primary data and relevant secondary data was used to develop a granular analysis of stakeholders perspectives on South Africa's Just Transition The positive impact of this report is that it presents concise and coherent raw insights from communities and stakeholders on how the PCCs engagements can be strengthened, relevant, and responsive. These insights have helped build a framework to inform the PCC's future engagement processes on the JT.
