Paris Agreement: Backbone of recovery
Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is facing a tipping point. The COVID-19 economic recovery packages announced will define the future of the region.
LAC governments can link today´s recovery efforts to guide sustainable development that stimulates economic growth, creates employment opportunities, ensures competitiveness, and promotes innovation towards the imminent fourth industrial revolution in the short-term and beyond.
The COVID-19 recovery reports carried out by UN Environment Programme seek to support policy decision makers in seizing the opportunity to include low-carbon climate-resilient development strategies into recovery economic plans.
The studies demonstrate that economic recovery packages aligned with the Paris Agreement can deliver significantly higher benefits than current trends.
