This technical note is focused on economic recovery and is meant to help developing countries accelerate climate and disaster resilience and low-carbon development through the design of COVID-19 interventions in their medium-term recovery and long-term transformation phases. The technical note describes how a large number of the recovery interventions that are desirable with respect to delivering stimulus benefits can also improve climate and disaster resilience or support low-carbon development. When the package includes measures directed at inequalities and vulnerabilities exposed by the pandemic, countries gain the opportunity to drive a sustainable economic recovery, reduce inequality, build resilience and deliver the SDGs.
