Climate change is a defining crisis of our time, and its impacts are global and unprecedented in scale. At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic too has side-swiped society with devastating impacts on health, livelihoods, and the economy. As we look towards a post-pandemic world, we have an opportunity to shape a recovery that leverages solutions addressing the climate crisis and promoting health, equality, and financial wellbeing. Our recovery can be sustainable, putting people back to work and ensuring they’re contributing to the green economy.
