A sustainable recovery for people and planet

Organizer(s) World Bank, the

The COVID-19 pandemic has destroyed lives, livelihoods and economies. It has also demonstrated the interconnectedness of our natural, human and physical capital. How can countries bring about recoveries that benefit people and planet? What investments today can unlock short term gains – jobs and economic growth – as well as deliver the benefits of resilience, decarbonization, cleaner air and water, healthier oceans, and more sustainable food and agriculture systems.

This event will look at how countries can best incorporate climate, nature and social inclusion in their stimulus packages and recovery plans. It will also look ahead to next year’s COP26, along with the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), when new targets for the conservation, sustainable use and sharing of benefits from biodiversity will be decided.

Time: 12-1 pm ET | 4-7pm GMT
