Blueprint for a green recovery in Greece
WWF calls on Greece to build back a better, greener and fairer future.
As the world struggles to recover and rebuild from the coronavirus pandemic, now is the time to invest in the health of people and the planet. A new report launched by WWF Greece, outlines a green stimulus plan for Greece, aiming for a nature-positive economy, with the potential to create thousands of new jobs.
Beyond a dramatic health crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic has triggered an unprecedented economic collapse. In response to this crisis, the European Union took a historic step by creating a common funding facility that aims to boost economic recovery across member-states; the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF). Where and how these funds are spent will determine the development pathway of Greece, for the decades to come. Will funds be used to prop up an economically broken and environmentally unsustainable development model, or can we instead harness this chance to finance transformative investments that put the economy on a sustainable course? For WWF, this is a unique opportunity for Greece and Europe in general, to build back a better, greener, fairer economy that works for the people and the planet.
