As part of the European Green Deal, the Just Transition Mechanism (JTM) was set up to leave no person and no region behind in the transition towards a climate-neutral economy. It includes the Just Transition Fund (JTF), which will invest €17.5 billion in the 2021-2027 period in the territories most affected by the transition to a climate-neutral economy.

The JTF Regulation entered into force on 1 July 2021. Member States are already preparing their territorial just transition plans (TJTP) and related cohesion policy programmes, based on Annex D of their European Semester country report of February 2020.
