Just transition in Hunedoara: economic diversification in a fair and sustainable manner
Study | 23 September 2019
NGOs Greenpeace and Bankwatch Romania launched a new report outlining scenarios for the post-coal development of Romania’s best known coal region, Jiu Valley, highlighting job growth and economic development without coal is very much possible in the region.
The alternative scenarios, prepared by the Romanian Center for Economic Policies – Cerope, focus on the development of three main economic sectors: agriculture, industry and services. The analysis shows that, if alternative development scenarios are implemented, thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions of euros can be generated in the region by 2030
