Join the conversation: #BuildBackBetter

WRI is convening experts across sectors and geographies to provide insights about how to shift to a more sustainable and equitable model after COVID-19. Tune in to an upcoming webinar to engage in a conversation about the pandemic’s long-term implications and how recovery can support a range of environmental, economic, social and health benefits. Recorded webinars, slides and podcasts are also available.

In 2019, Leonardo Martinez-Diaz and Alice Hill co-authored Building a Resilient Tomorrow: How to Prepare for the Coming Climate Disruption. In 2020, the biggest economic and social disruption in generations struck, with COVID laying low the global economy and taking lives worldwide.

In this webinar, Martinez-Diaz and Hill revisit their work in the context of this massive shock, discussing how COVID and climate change are alike and how they are different, outlining lessons for climate resilience from COVID, and laying the groundwork for how political and financial institutions can be better prepared the next time around.
