Scaling the JETP Model – Prospects and Pathways for Action

For the first time, world leaders agreed to “transition away” from fossil fuels at COP28. The only way to achieve this—to avoid the worst of climate change—is to make this transition a path for human progress and development. However, people are being left behind in the ongoing climate transformation—that inequity is not only unjust, but also driving polarization, undermining democracy, and destabilizing the world. Last year, The Rockefeller Foundation partnered with the Environmental Defense Fund, to facilitate a series of convenings that examined Just Energy Transition Partnerships (JETP) and how to scale these models to benefit the worlds most vulnerable communities.

  • During six convenings, more than 250 experts, stakeholders, and practitioners explored pathways to adapt and scale the JETP model to additional countries.
  • Four distinct, mutually reinforcing paths that philanthropic, multilateral, private sector and civil society, and government leaders can take to address barriers to scale were outlined in a report.
  • Learnings were shared, along with recommendations on how to fully realize the potential of the JETP model are also detailed in the report.
