To coincide with Earth Day 2020, we have pulled together a brief list of articles by the IDB’s Climate Change Division. While COVID-19 rightly dominates the headlines as countries focus on the immediate medical emergency, it is important that we don’t take our eyes off the climate and ecological emergencies too.
As we show below, the coronavirus provides a stark reminder that protecting biodiversity and confronting the climate crisis is also about protecting our own health. Looking to the future, recovery plans that put people and the planet first via sustainable infrastructure investments guided by long-term decarbonization strategies will be essential to deliver on the objectives of the Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goals.
