In recent months, a myriad of studies and webinars have highlighted the importance of aligning COVID-19 recovery packages with social and environmental objectives. A green recovery would offer economic returns on government investments, generate growth and create jobs. It would also put the world on track to more healthy and sustainable future, reduce the risks of future pandemics, improve our public health and environmental outcomes and put the world on a much-needed pathway towards net-zero emissions.

The OECD, WWF and EDF, in collaboration with the World Bank, have organised a series of  high-level virtual dialogues aiming to address specific bottlenecks, mechanisms and institutional arrangements that facilitate the recovery while increasing decisive climate and nature action.

The Friday Series for a Green and Healthy Recovery will focus on health and the environment. The dialogues will seek to provide insights and some specific examples of institutional and financial investments to inform short and mid-term decision-making by governments and key stakeholders. These conversations will inform policymakers as they move forward with recovery policies, and as well as influencing delegations for ongoing international processes including the SDGs, biodiversity and climate change COPs.

Please join us for thought-provoking discussions!
