Coal, oil and gas exporting countries fear negative effects from fossil fuel phase-down. Yet demand for zero-emissions fuels and commodities is a large upside. Fossil fuel exporting countries can establish new energy, processing and mining industries that will thrive in a net-zero world economy.  

Watch the COP28 side event led by the ANU Institute for Climate, Energy & Disaster Solutions (ICEDS) in partnership with the Iran Renewable Energy Association (IrREA) to hear more about energy transitions in fossil fuel exporting countries.
