What should a pandemic recovery plan look like, and where should public spending be allocated to? Rather than simply returning to a pre-pandemic status quo, a true recovery should help us overcome the twin crises of inequality/poverty and climate change. In short, what would a Green New Deal look like for East Asian countries? In this webinar, we will learn from speakers with expertise in climate change and environmental policies in South Korea, Taiwan, China and Japan about the current status and challenges of green policies that are key to rebuilding better.
