17. May 2021Invitation to Participate in Survey on Decarbonisation Coping Strategies

The CINTRAN Team invites you to participate in this survey and help us to collect examples from all parts of the world of how different people, organizations and institutions cope with decarbonisation.

The CINTRAN project has started a survey to collect examples of how different people, organizations and institutions cope with decarbonisation. The results will be used to track and categorise the different strategies that people and organisations use to cope with changes to due to decarbonisation. Categorisation of coping strategies will help us to understand possible responses to decarbonisation, and inform more effective, just and inclusive governance of regional transformations.

We are interested in examples from all parts of the world and in response to any kind of decarbonisation activity. We aim to identify coping actions – their causes, initiators, participants, places, timelines, and targets – and to analyse their strategies in relation to the actions’ outcomes and development.

For example, when a coal mine closure is planned:

  • Individuals might cope by retraining for a new job, or moving to a new region;
  • Unions might engage in international union movement work toward a “just transition”;
  • Citizen organisations might organise a campaign to preserve local jobs;
  • Local governments might start an advertising campaign to attract investment to the region;
  • National governments might organise a participatory working group to bring key stakeholders together to decide on how to proceed.

Any action or policy that is intended to reduce emissions can be called a “decarbonisation activity”. For example, coal mine closures, renewable energy developments, and the implementation of carbon taxes are all decarbonization activities.

The CINTRAN project is interested in coping strategies in response to any kind of decarbonisation strategy, and from any part of the world. Completing the survey should take 8-10 minutes.
