Regional transitions away from coal mining and coal-based energy generation are complex, not least because they require effort from multiple actors. Coal regions often do not correspond to a particular administrative boundary, and therefore require collaboration across different administrative units and levels of government. This toolkit provides insights on key governance aspects in regions that are pursuing the decarbonisation and diversification of their economies. These include: building effective governance models; designing and implementing stakeholder engagement and social dialogue processes; and enhancing the role of civil society in the transition.
