Fossil fuels subsidies impede sustainable development, drain national budgets and divert resources from other priorities such as health and education. In addition, they undermine public health and social welfare, driving air pollution, congestion and climate change.
On 2 October at 3:00 PM CET, join the Green Growth Knowledge Partnership (GGKP), the Green Fiscal Policy Network, and the IKI project “Green Economy Transformation” for a webinar that will present the methodology for collecting and reporting data on fossil fuel subsidies. It will also provide practical guidance to countries on compiling national estimates of fossil fuel subsidies and share insights from country experiences with fossil fuel subsidy monitoring and reform.
For more information on fossil fuel subsidies, read this UN Environment Green Economy Policy Brief.
