CELA is pleased to see key elements of a Green and Just Recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic in yesterday’s Fall Economic Statement (FES).
CELA communications intern, Isobel Mason and Senior Researcher Kathleen Cooper blog about calls for a green and just recovery, highlighting the path forward in specific recommendations from the Green Budget Coalition.
Four key recommendations include building retrofits, clean transportation, nature-based climate solutions and protected areas
The need for recovery from the social and economic impacts of COVID-19 task us with a historic responsibility. We can choose to reinvest in the status quo, or we can rebuild better and more safely. The Green Budget Coalition strongly encourages making climate and biodiversity objectives central to Canada's recovery.
