Green recovery: perspectives from Brazil

Even before the pandemic, lawmakers around the world were already working on proposals for economic plans that take environmental issues into account, an effort that was consolidated as the Green New Deal. The relevance of legislation and government plans that drive the climate agenda was even more evident with the crisis imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The role of the private sector in accelerating its plans for the low carbon economy is also becoming increasingly evident.

How did these plans progress and what are the global perspectives for their implementation? Do the plans under discussion today meet the needs also imposed by the climate crisis, already underway? This event will present possibilities of implementing Recovery Plans with a climate focus, considering the public and private sectors.
