The energy transition is expected to shape the future of resource-dependent countries, impacting government revenues, investment decisions, and development at the local level. While some regions and localities might benefit from increased investments in strategic minerals, others might face economic losses when transitioning away from fossil fuel production. The transition to a low-carbon economy will have implications for the world’s reliance on fossil fuels as a source of energy and the supply of strategic minerals, which are vital in scaling up renewable energy and electric batteries. For communities dependent on fossil fuel production and mineral extraction, the energy transition will impact revenues derived from extractive activities, employment and local procurement opportunities, and companies’ social and economic contributions.

In order to improve natural resource governance and oversee a just energy transition in Indonesia, Publish What You Pay (PWYP) Indonesia and IDEA Yogyakarta with the support of the EITI International Secretariat are implementing the “Engaging Communities in a Just Transition through EITI Indonesia Implementation” project.

This project is to support civil society and local communities specifically those in the North Morowali District, Central Sulawesi, to understand better the energy transition’s impact on the extractive sector and their livelihoods. Particularly, in the issues of variations in sub-national revenue from ongoing and planned projects informed by EITI-data. This project is to support EITI Indonesia’s MSG better understanding of local community needs, opportunities and possible risks around the energy transition through sub-national level reporting – based on the case study community in the Morowali District. Also, support to the Local communities with an opportunity to engage the EITI Indonesia MSG-platform to amplify the voice of communities for improved energy and natural resource governance.
