A Just Transition finance roadmap for South Africa: A first iteration

  • Year: 2021
  • Organisation: TIPS
  • Author(s): Sandy Lowitt , Itumeleng Mokoena (TIPS)
  • Countries and Regions: South Africa

A just transition finance roadmap aims to articulate a new end vision for the financial ecosystem which perfectly aligns lending and investment actions to idealised government environmental and social policies which support a net zero economy. Once a final vision is articulated, the roadmap provides routes and  signposts to arrive at such a destination. This first iteration of a just transition finance roadmap for South Africa, is an initial attempt to understand the nature of the challenge of just transition finance in South Africa, what a system level change to the financial eco system could look like and an action agenda for the next four years to begin moving towards such a vision.
