POLICY BRIEF: Paving the Path for Green Recovery 1

The aggregations and syntheses of content and discussions out of the Dialogue Forum to present to the public “alternative public policies” on issues of importance that challenge the society

When the Covid-19 pandemic first broke out last year, two major environmental phenomena were witnessed: a drastic drop in greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere following lockdowns and restrictions to combat the spread of Covid-19 in several areas, and the public appearance of rare animals from the wild in several locations left undisturbed by human activities due to Covid control measures.

The two phenomena were a pleasant surprise and painted a positive picture of the post-Covid-19 period. They have also led to serious discussions about the most critical environmental crises, which are climate change and the loss of biodiversity.

There are also calls to rewild nature and implement more ambitious solutions to address the crises, believed to be linked to a public health challenge, especially the loss of biodiversity. Among some critical proposals is Green Recovery, which is expected to pave the way for more sustainable and resilient development.

At the heart of the proposal is climate change and the loss of biodiversity, as well as long-term solutions for both challenges, especially in the post-Covid-19 period. Some countries, especially in the EU bloc, have started to explore the Green Recovery proposal, creating budgets and plans. It is believed that this will enable the world to become a sustainable and resilient society for the long term, the goal of achieving a Green Economy being a key driver.
