ADB-ISEAS Joint Webinar on Green Recovery
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute (ISEAS) will hold a joint webinar on Implementing a Green Recovery in Southeast Asia.

As countries begin to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, policy makers must decide what type of economic recovery they want to pursue. A green recovery approach is crucial for Southeast Asia in addressing the worsening impacts of climate change and biodiversity loss and strengthening the region’s long-term competitiveness. Among the green growth opportunities that have significant economic potential in terms of creating jobs, reversing environmental damage, and achieving the sustainable development goal targets are: productive and regenerative agriculture, sustainable urban development and transport models, clean energy transition, circular economy models, and healthy and productive oceans.

This webinar will discuss how these green growth opportunities can be harnessed as governments increasingly recognize the need for recent policy measures to focus on environmental sustainability or ‘greenness’, address climate change, and strengthen disaster preparedness. How can governments minimize the negative impacts of fiscal stimulus packages on the environment? What role can regional cooperation play to build back greener and more resilient post-pandemic? What are sustainable sources of financing to ensure the sustained momentum towards this path?
