About the Network

The FFFsR Network is an international network of government officials designed to share experience, knowledge, and encourage smooth reform of fossil fuel subsidies between peers in the format of closed, virtual roundtables under the Chatham House Rule. The participation is by invitation only basis, welcoming nominated officials involved in the process of subsidy reform or management of associated impacts.

The FFFsR Network is an initiative by the Friends of Fossil Fuel Subsidy Reform.

The Friends group was formed in June 2010 to support G20 and APEC leaders’ commitments to phase out inefficient fossil fuel subsidies. The Friends encourage the G20 and APEC to implement their initiative as soon as possible, with maximum ambition and transparency.
