To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, with reference to The Joint Statement: International Just Energy Transition Partnership with South Africa of 2 November 2021, what plans the Government has for other Just Energy Transition Partnerships to support other countries.
Just Energy Transition Partnerships are a key delivery mechanism for the Clean Green Initiative announced by the Prime Minister at COP26 in November last year, and will improve global energy sustainability and security by reducing dependence on fossil fuels. These partnerships will provide a single focal point to channel technical assistance, public finance, and - crucially - private finance to support a host country's energy transition ambitions.
Following on from the announcement of the Just Energy Transition Partnership with South Africa at COP26, we have been working closely with partners to reach agreement with other potential host country governments. We look forward to the announcement of partnerships with further countries later this year.
