Economic Recovery: Full Conversation with David Malpass, Kristalina Georgieva, and Janet Yellen

The lingering pandemic has dealt the global economy an unprecedented shock, and the recovery is likely to be slow and uneven. Disadvantages and inequalities have been amplified, with harm falling hardest on poorer people, firms, and countries which face obstacles to financial resources and networks. What is needed to support a faster and deeper economic recovery that lays a foundation for a more sustainable and inclusive global economic system?  

This event will focus on economic recovery through three broad lenses: 

  • Sustainability: How can we make this a green recovery and rebuild economic systems to better use resources and create a climate-friendly future? 

  • Resilience and Innovation: How can firms reinvent themselves to create more jobs, and how can governments find new ways to transform the crisis into an opportunity for growth? How can youth avoid the risk of a “lost generation”? 

  • Inclusion: How can policy makers ensure that everyone benefits from the recovery and inequality is not worsened? This includes attention to the ways the pandemic has disproportionately affected women and girls.
