This report commissioned by C40 and co-authored by Eutropian highlights the opportunities that cities can leverage and strategies that may be effective in shaping a stronger collective voice in pursuit of just transition in Europe.  It (1) provides a key resource for European cities to improve their understanding of their national contexts and key plans, policies and projects relating to just transition; (2) emphasises the role of cities and their entry points to contribute towards the debate on a just transition;  (3) evaluates advocacy opportunities in global climate discussions; (4) explains the range of regional stakeholders active in the just transition space; and (5) provides C40 with an up-to-date evidence base on the topic of just transition so that it can best support European and global cities to develop their climate actions.
