COP-28 Side Event: Preparing for the Green Transition in Fossil Fuel Exporters

December 9, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The global energy transition poses macroeconomic challenges for fossil fuel exporting countries, including more uncertain hydrocarbon revenues, exports and investment inflows. How will these countries be impacted in the next decade and what policies can they adopt to harness opportunities in the transition to a lower carbon economy and mitigate possible macroeconomic disruptions? Panelists will share views on the scale of the challenge, as well as fiscal policy and diversification priorities to respond in a timely and coordinated way.
