The session

Governments and international institutions have proposed roadmaps to ‘build back better.’ From the World Bank’s ‘Green Resilient and Inclusive Development’ framework to the EU’s Green Deal, these plans promise a lifeline out of the Covid-19 pandemic that is green and fair. However, there are concerns that these plans will deepen the ‘Wall Street Consensus,’ lock the world into an economic model which will deepen the unjust division of power and resources, lead to fiscal policies that deepen inequalities and social tensions at home and reduce the space of the Global South to define the pace and scope of their just transition.

The panelists will analyse current proposals for a green recovery on the basis of their ability to deliver a just transition. They will also provide their thoughts what remains to be done to ensure that current responses adequately address the financial gaps needed to achieve a just transition.
