Tasc is currently undertaking a significant research project, in partnership with the Foundation for European Progressive Studies, into the role that Rural Local Wealth Building can play in enhancing the enabling environment for a Just Transition in rural areas. The final report will seek to inform decision makers across Europe in how to support fair and equitable climate action.

As this research develops, every effort will be made to share provisional findings and observations. These will be posted below.
