MDB Just Transition High-Level Principles
The Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) have jointly committed to supporting a just transition. At the UN Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit in September 2019, the MDBs published a High-Level Statement, which set out their strategic priorities as they relate to climate change and the actions they would take to address them. This included a commitment to ‘help clients move away from the use of fossil fuels’ by supporting the development of long-term low greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and climate resilient strategies, and by working ‘with national development banks and other financial institutions, to develop, by COP26, financing and policy strategies supporting a just transition that promotes economic diversification and inclusion’.
Following an initial stocktake of MDB activities relating to just transition, the MDBs have agreed to develop a set of high-level principles to help guide MDB support for a just transition, and to ensure consistency, credibility, and transparency in their efforts.
