The 25th Global Conference on Environmental Taxation (GCET), organised by Stellenbosch University’s Business School, will be held on 18-20 September 2024 at the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study (STIAS) in Stellenbosch, which is situated near Cape Town (South Africa).

The 2024 edition, entitled “Towards a just energy transition – perspectives from the North and South” is to be held for the first time on the African continent. It provides an ideal global platform to foster participatory and inclusive climate change dialogue between the Global North and South, especially at a time when, as the IPCC 2022 report notes, “humanity is at a crossroads”. The use of environmental taxation and other market-based instruments is critical in achieving a just energy transition, particularly in development contexts.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Saliem Fakir, African Climate Change Foundation
  • Muhammad Ashfaq Ahmad, Federal Board of Revenue, Pakistan
  • Nthabiseng Moleko, Stellenbosch University Business School
  • Karen Bosman, Wesgro, South Africa
