The Support Project for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement, the Euroclima+ programme and E3G are excited to share a new publication outlining a practical framework for a green recovery.

Green recovery is a widely used term for packages of measures addressing the social, economic and political consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic in a way that sets the course for a shift towards sustainable and inclusive development, biodiversity protection, resilience and climate neutrality.

This publication provides a framework that captures the key elements of a green recovery to inform the work of practitioners who seek to plan and implement green recovery measures. It is the first of three products in the series Green Recovery for Practitioners, particularly developed as a contribution to the NDC Partnership’s Economic Advisory Initiative. It draws upon and sits within a suite of existing frameworks and definitions by the United Nations, UN PAGE, IMF, and the Coalition of Finance Ministers for Climate Action, amongst others.

The paper first introduces the concept of a green recovery, setting out the importance and benefits of bringing this topic into the work of economy, finance, and planning ministries. It then breaks down the different components of a green recovery, providing practical lists of possible outcomes, stakeholders, and tools. These also feature exemplary approaches that countries are currently pursuing to reform and align strategies and policies in the areas of national planning, monetary and fiscal tools, employment, and nature-based solutions, amongst others. Finally, the paper summarises key takeaways for those planning and implementing green recovery measures.

Have a look inside, to learn more about the different elements to consider for green recovery planning, steps that countries are already taking to build forward better, and to understand why these measures can set the course towards a society-wide, sustainable, inclusive and resilient transformation.
