Greening the Response: How National Climate Ambition Can Shape a Sustainable Recovery
As countries respond to the immediate health concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic, they will also need to focus on stimulus packages to stem its severe economic impact. As they do so, they have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to set a foundation for a more sustainable and prosperous future. Ahead of the 5 year anniversary of the Paris Agreement, the World Bank is hosting a virtual event to highlight why greening the response to the pandemic is critical and how we will support clients to do so. The event will include the launch of a new multi-donor trust fund to support countries accelerate efforts towards a low-carbon, climate-resilient recovery.
