Zasavje region Just Transition Center

  • Zasavje region Just Transition Center
  • Just transition governance
Zasavje Regional development agency operates the Center for Just Transition, which serves as an entry point for potential applicants, as well as for general public, interested in the activities of the Just Transition Fund.

Center for Just Transition is a unit that operates separately from the tasks performed within the framework of governance. The purpose of the center is to carry out the following activities:
  • establishing local partnerships and networking for the needs of implementing projects or operations,
  • conducting trainings and strengthening the capacity of project sponsors,
  • providing support in the project elaboration phase (support in the development of project ideas, preparation of applications, investment documentation, etc.),
  • monitoring the implementation of projects and support in project management, as well as recording of spatially and environmentally degraded areas (condition, optimal use, method and timeline of remediation,...),
  • elaboration of studies and analyzes necessary for effective and timely implementation of the strategy and related programs, measures or projects,

Center for Just Transition also acts as the main information point, thereby ensuring the consistent implementation of information and notification measures for both local stakeholders (e.g. citizens, project sponsors, workers in the coal industry, etc.) as well as the wider interested public. It also coordinates the activities of all stakeholders in the region (youth, NGOs, social partners, economy, local communities, others) in activities related to the implementation of the ONPP of the Zasava region.
