Green Recovery Dialogue: Advancing a Green and Inclusive Recovery Through Adaptation and Resilience
September 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The global health and economic crisis wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic has been compounded by unprecedented weather events. Disasters continue to threaten food security, accelerate biodiversity loss, endanger livelihoods, and increase social inequality. These risks are poised to intensify amid a changing climate. As governments develop and implement economic recovery packages, adaptation and resilience priorities must be embedded to help address these impacts.
Join us for an event to examine the technical adaptation and resilience aspects necessary for a green recovery. The event will discuss opportunities for integrating adaptation and resilience into pandemic response and recovery measures that also inform National Adaptation Plans and other climate priorities. It will also highlight the perspectives of national and local governments and the challenges of adopting long-term adaptation interventions that immediately respond to the health, social, and fiscal impacts of COVID-19.
This event is the first in the Green Recovery Dialogue, a series of high-level events, hosted by the Climate Support Facility and the Green Recovery Initiative, that seek to elevate the discussion around how investing in green recovery efforts can accelerate low-carbon, climate resilient development. These discussions will be held regularly to raise the discourse on the technical considerations of green recovery and elevate the need for countries to align economic stimulus efforts with the climate targets under the Paris Agreement.
