The Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic
in partnership with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung
(FES) South Africa, is pleased
to invite you to a research workshop on the Transition
to a Low-Carbon Economy Scenarios taking place on the 10th July 2018 at Cedarwoods of Sandton.
The Low-Carbon Economy Scenarios
explore possible answers to the key question, ‘How do we build a just transition toward a socially
inclusive economy by 2063?’ by looking at how South Africa can
manage the transition to an economy characterised by low-carbon emissions. This
research workshop, forms part of a series of activities aimed at synthesising
more research on this key question.
Twenty participants have been
interviewed, and the findings from these interviews, and consultation with the
project’s reference team, have been used to confirm the first draft of possible
scenario variables. Participants have included representatives from the
private, public and civil society sectors, including researchers and academics. The
research workshop will delve into some of the factors that participants
identified as highly uncertain, highly impactful, or
requiring further investigation.
The feedback and insights provided by
this research workshop will be integrated into the variables, to yield the
‘second draft variables’. The research workshop will draw together experts from
various sectors, offering a platform for rigorous and creative engagement.
We hope that you will take up this
invitation to be part of what will be a stimulating gathering.
