COVID-19: Ten Priority Options for a Just, Green & Transformative Recovery
A joint statement from the Partners for Inclusive Green Economies on policies for the post-COVID recovery.
The COVID-19 crisis has painfully exposed the deep inequalities and fragilities of the social, financial, political and economic systems under which we live. It has amplified already existing inequalities and exclusion, both within and between countries and communities. As such, it offers a moment for global society to ask: How did we get here? Why are we vulnerable on this scale? And how can we recover?
Since 2015, the Partners for Inclusive Green Economy have been working together to build social, economic and environmental resilience, both globally and locally, through policy reforms that reduce system vulnerabilities. Informed by this work, the Partners for Inclusive Green Economies offer 10 practical considerations for governments and other stakeholders, as we begin to look towards policies for our long term economic recovery and resilience.
We commit to collaborate with and support our partner countries and others in implementing this agenda. We invite other institutions to join our efforts to support all stakeholders to build back better, in a way that is just, green, smart, risk-informed and transformative.
