Unpacking the green recovery spending – An assessment of seized and missed opportunities for a low-carbon recovery globally, in the EU and in the Nordic countries


Publish date
This policy brief presents recommendations on how to align future COVID-19 fiscal response measures with the Paris Agreement’s long-term temperature goal globally, in the EU and, where data are available, also for selected Nordic countries. This brief is based on the findings of a research project supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers Working Group for Climate and Air (NKL), entitled: “The impact of COVID-19 and recovery packages on emission pathways to 2030”. This research project has been prepared as a specific contribution to the 2021 edition of the UNEP Emissions Gap Report.
