Tyndall Researchers contribute to the 2011 Human Development Report: Sustainability and Equity: A Better Future for All

 

Peter Newell (Sussex), Jon Phillips (UEA) and Dustin Mulvaney (UC Berkeley) have contributed a Research Paper to the 2011 Human Development Report: Sustainability and Equity: A Better Future for All. The paper, Pursuing Clean Energy Equitably, highlights the need for a ‘just transition’ to clean energy production and consumption and some of the institutional and political barriers to meeting the challenge. It outlines how necessary changes in energy decision-making will entail complex trade-offs that make strong, participatory and transparent institutional arrangements essential in order to govern energy equitably and ensure more equal distribution of energy use.
