    UNU-INRA is conducting research aims at exploring the intersections between stranded hydrocarbon assets and various forms of risk and inequities affecting energy access in the informal sector within the economy implications of ‘just transition’ in the Ghanaian context. A variety of critical nations, including Ghana, Zambia, Namibia and Côte d’Ivoire, will be the focus of an empirical study to collect primary data.

    The research was aimed at exploring the intersections between stranded hydrocarbon assets and various forms of risk and inequities affecting energy access in the informal sector within the political economy implications of Just Transition in the Ghanaian context. The focus is on the informal sector as a critical dimension for sustainably managing stranding and low carbon transition and possibly exploring opportunities for the informal sector to lead the transition towards decarbonised economies.
