The session will explore how to finance and govern a just transition. Financing the green transition is associated with the need to mobilise a significant amount of resources, and new opportunities for accessing finance targeted at environmental issues will emerge. Fiscal policy will be essential, and coordinated actions in the revenue and expenditure side, as well as in the international management of debt, will be crucial. Similarly, it is essential to focus on designing green transition policies, holistic and transformative policy packages that take into account the costs they generate and that incorporate mechanisms to compensate those groups who, at least temporarily, are negatively affected. The success and acceptance of the transition will require building consensus and promoting citizen participation in policy-making.
