Protecting Indigenous and Impacted Communities In a Global Energy Transition
The 2021 Net Zero 2050 Roadmap by the IEA makes clear that existing and planned oil and gas drilling must be urgently phased out to slow global warming and its devastating effects. However, this phase-out, while urgent, is likely to have additional impacts on indigenous communities globally, whose livelihoods have been intertwined and affected by oil and gas extraction -- both economically and by extraction's ongoing environmental impacts. As the world phases out oil and gas projects, it is important to ethically and socially center the impact that this will have on indigenous communities internationally. What policies, legal structures, and enforcement strategies might be in place to protect indigenous communities during this sustainable transition, both environmentally and economically?
