Designing Policies to Maximise Positive Social Impacts

Background information

Policy design can ensure that clean energy transitions maximise benefits across populations. All clean energy programmes have the potential to have distributional impacts and policy design must be attentive to how costs and benefits are distributed. 

This session of our Global Summit on People-Centred Clean Energy Transitions explores the different elements of policy design essential to ensuring that the benefits of clean energy transitions are maximised and fairly distributed amongst all segments of the population.
