Event - Are we building back better
- Climate Change
The global economy has contracted by nearly 4% in 2020. Internationally, more than two million people have died, over 100 million have been infected and many hundreds of millions have been thrown out of work or reduced to poverty. And three planetary crises loom: climate instability, nature loss, and increasing levels of pollution. Efforts to recover from the pandemic must take account of these crises or risk further shocks and take us farther from achieving Sustainable Development.
Our team of international leaders and experts will ask and answer the questions that matter:
- What is at risk if we fail to build back better?
- Can recovery spending bring strong economic and job impacts while securing environmental progress?
- Have countries been using Covid-19 spending to tackle climate change, nature loss, and pollution?
- How can countries better leverage recovery spending to accelerate the transition to a sustainable and more equitable world?
