Thriving and just societies: integrating climate, nature and development in a COVID-19 green recovery
COVID-19 has exposed deep inequalities in our society. On 17 November, 2020, IIED hosted an online event that brought together experts to discuss integrated action on climate, nature and development, in the context of a green recovery from the pandemic.
As part of London Climate Action Week, the event considered:
*What are the interdependencies and interlinkages between climate, nature and development? How will society benefit from an integrated approach to addressing this triple agenda?
*What is a green recovery, and what does the recovery from COVID-19 look like when climate, nature and development is at the heart of decision-making?
*Through integrating climate, nature and development, how can we promote a just transition in the recovery from COVID-19 that also includes scaling up finance for locally led initiatives, with equitable governance that draws in indigenous and generational knowledge?
During the event, graphic artist Jorge Martin produced an illustration to convey the discussions, and this is the final product.
