As the world convalesces from the COVID-19 pandemic, we must continue ambitious action on climate change. We have an opportunity to rebuild our world for a more inclusive, more resilient, more sustainable future. This includes mainstreaming climate change considerations into the entire finance ecosystem by targeting both short-term economic recovery and long-term structural changes aligned with sustainable, inclusive growth and strengthening society’s resilience.

CPI, working with our partners, has been a leader in convening and influencing high-level discussions to help bridge economic action with the key need for a green, resilient recovery globally.
